    I hope this little email (posted Monday-Friday) will uplift and encourage you to see the good things all around you.

    DURING JULY: I will be having my summer holiday, in places where the web connection may be poor - this means these emails will come more seldom than Mon-Fri every day.

    Food for Thought

    The positive bus-driver

    I read this little story many years back somewhere (in my own words):

    It was a bleak and rainy March morning. People were traveling to work in a bus. The driver was humming a cheerful tune and drumming the wheel with his fingers.

    "Aren't you the positive one..." A tired passenger said when he got on the bus.

    "Indeed I am, sir. I'm happy because I am facing a completely new experience - namely a whole new day I have not lived before!"

    (Gotta love that attitude...)

    This is a photo of the rig of one of the big sail ships that took part in the Tall Ships' Race in 2017. The ships arrived in Turku, Finland - majestic, big sail ships from all over the world.

    Daily Funny

    "You told me you would try to cycle a hundred kilometres yesterday to break your record. How did it go?"

    "Not very well. I cycled for 50 kilometres but then I got tired and turned back home."

    Do you have a funny story you would like to see published in this letter? An event, what someone said? If so, send me your funny story in an email

    “I can't control the wind but I can adjust the sail.”

    - Ricky Skaggs

    Quote from Space Witches 1 / Chapter 4: Through the Revolving Door

    “Where’s my room?” I asked.

    “It’s in the revolving door,” Mia said, “you’ll see soon enough.”

    We entered a big hall. It seemed the Halfway House was quite expansive. It had double stairs that curved upwards, one on each side of the round hall. A corridor stretched out for a considerable distance beneath them. Matthew did not head that way, though. He turned towards the exit on the opposite side, which was… a revolving door.

    “There,” he pointed at the door, “go through it and think of home.”

    “It’s that easy?” I turned to ask Mia.

    “It is. You just think about your room, or home, or wherever you wish to go, and when you walk through the door, that’s where you'll find yourself. You would have need to have visited it in your life, though, to be on the safe side. If you think of something you saw in a book or on TV, and don't know the layout of the place, you might end up who knows where?”

    “Wow, talk about technology!” I said. “The scientists on the plates would kill for this!”

    “Being dead has its privileges,” Matthew admitted, “even if it can be a bit dull here…”

    I sell my books directly too. The ebooks are cheap to buy and the big e-stores don't share much of the price with the authors. That is why I have downloaded my books to Payhip - they don't take a commission and I get more to pay my editor, proofreader and cover designer. All of whom are one-woman businesses themselves.

    If you prefer to write a short happy note each day, I have created planners for this effect. You can write your daily happiness in the squares of the weekly spread - and plan future happiness using the monthly pages. There are even happy (repositionable) stickers included in the planner.
