So – Kaspa & I are getting married on the 18th of June. In less than four weeks. Eek!
I’m getting nervous about whether we’ve got everything ready for the day, and whether everyone will have a lovely time. But I can’t WAIT to be a married woman.
We're having a Buddhist ceremony (which apparently involves having water sprinkled on us) and I'm also looking forward to my favourite puddings - banoffee pie, chocolate cheesecake and summer fruits and cream. A little of each, I think ; )
As a way of making our day even more special, we’re inviting people all over the world to give us a special gift on the day by writing a small stone. And we need your help, river-of-stoners...
We’re hoping that people will pay attention to something on the 18th of June and send something through to us, whether or not they’ve written a small stone before. We’ll put all these small stones on a website (when we get back from our honeymoon!) and they’ll be a wonderful record of our day.
We'd love you to take part, and we'd also love you to join our Blogsplash and post instructions on your blog on the 1st of June so that other people can hear about the project and get involved themselves. You can find out how to do this (and how to send us a small stone yourself) at Wedding Small Stones. We do hope you can help us.
In other news, we're also excited to let you know about our new self-study e-course, ‘The Art of Paying Attention’. The first of the four week-long modules (which also works well as a self-contained course) is ‘How to Pay Attention to the World’, and we’re offering this completely free of charge.
The course includes a Workbook (including essays, stories and exercises), daily emails, four short videos of Kaspa & I, and exclusive access to a private group on the Writing Our Way Home forum where you can share your learning with fellow participants.
If you’d like to find out more, click here. And here's me & Kaspa talking about the course in a bluebell wood...
So – wish us luck : )
