  1. So brave to go to a silent retreat. One day I would like to but I just can’t seem to keep all my thoughts to myself – which is why I like your number 19. I believe that if you find someone who says meditation is easy, that person may not be telling you the whole truth. I LOVE your idea of keeping track of the books you read. I think I will start this.

  2. Wow, I?m amazed by how much you read! I do read a lot, too, and maybe more than I think, but still I wonder how you do it all? Do you ever sleep? ;-))

  3. 52 novels in a year! i’m so excited for you … i try to do things like that all the time, and it never works out! for now i’m keeping track of everything i read in a book my mom got me with a velvety cover … it’s meant for this specific purpose, and it’s amazing!

    i know i couldn’t handle 10 days of silence, but i envy you for trying it out! meditation is amazing … i keep trying to get into yoga for that purpose!

    glad to get to know you better!

  4. Hanna, you’re such an inspiration; I am so happy to see you doing and sharing so much creativity. Now I think I’m going to have to make a list of books I read this year.

    And if anyone else likes microwave popcorn – the tv program “America’s Test Kitchens” sampled different brands of popcorn and their tasters concluded that Newman’s Own Butter – Old Time Picture Show popcorn tasted as good as or better than “regular” popcorn and without the sogginess that came from melted butter. (but they said to stay away from Newman’s “organic” popcorn.) This website will tell you where to buy it in your area. I’ve got to try this stuff!

  5. Hanna! Your motto is so good……… I?m very much “into” being aware of my breathing right now, to just let it go, let it flow…… I also collect mottos and wisdom words to make embroidery works of……. I?ll think I?ll do one of “Andas in. Andas ut.”

  6. I wholeheartedly agree with #19.
    Some blogs are just too “sunny day” for me–and it feels quite false–but that’s just me–warts and all.
