A Field Guide to Now & A Giveaway
The Universe really does do its thing. Serendipitously, while I was at Squam a few months ago, I found myself sharing a dining table with Christina Rosalie. She and I had not yet met, and we were seated with a few people in between us. I overheard her say something about Kinfolk, so my ears perked up. After a few moments, we were deep in conversation about our shared love for the writing and photography that makes up that stunning magazine. I knew she was a kindred spirit from that moment on.
While we weren’t in the same workshops, Christina and I got a few more conversations in with one another over the course of the weekend in New Hampshire. We discovered that we both attended the World Domination Summit this past July, and that we’re both headed back this coming summer. We also shared our love of food, travel, writing, and adventure. Told you, kindred. What Christina humbly did NOT bring up was her new book, A Field Guide to Now.
As soon as I returned home from Squam, I contacted Christina to purchase her book. Ever since, I’ve been slowing reading each section, savoring it like a rich chocolate or a fine wine. Christina beautifully writes about living a full and meaningful life. She shares personal stories about the importance and practice of being present, and how very hard that can be. As someone who has been actively focusing on what matters, I find myself marking up numerous passages in Christina’s book to serve as reminders as I navigate the terrain of my own life. I’m loving that Christina also intersperses her artwork throughout A Field Guide to Now. She has worked her mixed-media magic on a vintage postcard collection of her father’s to accompany the book’s essays. These postcards are stunning and bring an artful element to her rich writing.
I’m so happy to share with you that Christina is gifting 12 of these beautiful postcards to one lucky Life Refocused reader! These postcards will be delivered straight to you with a handwritten note from Christina. All you have to do is leave a comment here on this post. I’d love for you to share something you are doing in your life to focus on what matters.
I’ve enjoyed every moment I’ve spent with A Field Guide to Now. Thank you, Christina, for a guide to being present and engaged in life. And thank you, Universe, for bringing us together. xoxo
