    I wonder if your members would like to know about my new ebook? It is entitled ‘One Hundred Short Escapes.’ In it I describe 100 simple but enjoyable experiences such as flying a kite, picking blackberries, zesting a lemon, changing the bed linen, watching the sea lap the shore, etc. The idea is that readers can download this onto their ipads or Kindles (cost £3.12) and I hope that the reading of any of these prose poetry pieces could transport them from their everyday stresses to a calm and pleasurable experience or memory. I enclose the link for you to see:

    I hope that this might help with mindfulness.
    Thank you,

    Tamar
