Hello and happy Monday!

I’m having a latte and settling behind my desk for some dose of writing. But first, a song for you. Today, honoring the late Sir George Martin, named as the fifth Beatle by many, I wanted to share with you one song he produced with The Beatles, Love Me Do. It’s still one of my favorite songs.

Sir Martin has left a monumental legacy, which will keep his love for music, life and work with us forever.

Which Beatles song is your favorite? What have you been listening to lately?

Let me know in the comments below.

Wishing you a lovely day, read you all tomorrow on my Titillating Tuesday’s post.



Hello and happy Monday!

The Spring is just around the corner, I am telling you.  I escaped the hustle and bustle of a big city and enjoyed a quiet writer’s retreat that looked like this.  Sunny, green and very inspiring.  Each time I take a weekend off and go to some remote place, where I can forget about emails, phone, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and all the things that we all can’t live without, I realize how much perspective it gives me, how much clarity and inspiration.  I am now ready for the new week of writing (and I’m planning my next writing retreat as well!).

Today I wanted to share with you a song by Jim James, Take Care of You. Beautiful song, you can find it on the soundtrack of No Escape movie (I saw it and I was pretty stressed the entire time of watching it, talking about intensity…).

So here is the song, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Have a fantastic week!

Hello and happy Monday!

How are you today? I’m drinking a subtle grassy green tea and organizing my desk (and thoughts) so I can dig into some writing later this afternoon. One just can’t organize her thoughts without an organized writing space, don’t you agree?

The Music Monday recommendation today comes again from our faithful reader Wilbur. This time, it’s Refractor by Painted Palms. Tell me, what have you been listening lately, which music inspires you, and what kind of beverage inspires you to focus on writing or doing any kind of work? I’d love to hear about your working and writing tips!

Wishing you all a fabulous Monday, and an excellent week!


Hello and happy Monday!

Today I’m drinking a cinnamon latte and listening to Röyksopp.  How was your Valentine’s Day weekend?  I hope you spent it with people you love.  If you’re single – like me – I hope you shared love with your family and friends, but most of all, that you gave yourself lots of love.  Because you deserve it!

I started my Valentine’s celebrations on Thursday, at the Boudoir Stories book reading event at The Art of Loving in Vancouver.  You had so many amazing questions and I am honestly grateful for your interest and participation.  On Friday I met my dearest friends for a glass of wine, Saturday I spent with my family, and on Sunday we strolled around Vancouver and then cuddled at home with my lovely and furry Pippa.

I always feel that after Valentine’s Spring is just around the corner.  As if all the talking about love will melt all the snow and chase the winter away. Who knows, maybe love (and Spring) is just around the corner?

Today I share with you Röyksopp and What Else is There?

Hello and happy Monday!

Today I’m drinking a nice warm latte and enjoying the lovely holiday morning here in Vancouver.  I love Mondays that feel like Sundays, don’t you?

February has been good to me so far. I’ve finally starting to feel better after my over a month long cold, and it feels great to not have a sore throat!  If you’re near Vancouver this Thursday, January 11, 2016, don’t miss to visit me at the Art of Loving Store, where I’ll be doing a reading from some of my books.  Get more information about the event here.  I’d love to meet you in person!

Today I’d like to share with you a song by Laura Veirs, July Flame.

Happy Monday,
