The very secret of life for me, I believed, was to maintain in the midst of rushing events an inner tranquility. - Margaret Bourke-White

Happy Thursday and welcome to September.

It's time to pen the month's dreams and share on our Tranquility du Jour Daybook Facebook page. J'adore the eye candy-filled inspiration that springs forth there.

This brand new month happens to be my absolute favorite. It's back to school time which often involved a fresh school box stuffed with sharpened pencils, a new notebook, and lots of lined paper. Always love the chance to begin again. Literally and figuratively.

Inside this issue of Tranquility du Jour Love Notes, you'll find a request for blog testimonials for the upcoming Anthology, scoop on the fall online book club pick, the date for our next Seasonal Podcast, and more.

I'm looking for a foreward to my upcoming Tranquility du Jour Anthology {releasing this fall} and I would be honored if YOU would write it.

Share a 250-400-word piece on how Tranquility du Jour has impacted you and I may include it. Please submit to me by Tuesday, September 9.

It's time to pick a new Online Book Club read for fall. I'm considering Paris Letters, Still Writing, and Paradise in Plain Sight. Drawn to one in particular or read anything tantalizing lately? Do tell.

I'll announce the fall book within the next two weeks and have loved reading your responses to summer's pick, 10% Happier. Thank you for reading along and sharing your insights.

Tune into our latest podcast with Karen Maezen Miller where we learn how mindfulness is devoting yourself to what is in front of you, how someday never arrives, and four rules for a mindful garden.


This weekend I'm taking my second 8-week Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction course and can't wait to dive back into this creation of mindfulness rock star Jon Kabat-Zinn. You'll find lots of experience-sharing and insights on the blog over the next few months.

Next week I'm off to Squam to immerse myself in creative play and I'll be posting on Instagram, as the place is true soul balm. If you're in the area, I'll be showing TranquiliT at the Squam Art Fair on September 13th and would love to see you.

Make space for an Artist Date and watch your soul smile. Learn what can happen when time, space, and desire collide in today's Tranquilosophy post.

May your weekend be filled with spontaneity, deep breaths, and soaks in the tub. Merci beaucoup for joining me on this journey. You are beautiful.
