Leave it to my daughter to bring one of the greatest and most impactful treasures of my journey thus far into my world this weekend. Unbeknownst to me, Gia stumbled upon this British author, artist and creative GENIUS, “Charles Mackesy“, a few months back and has been literally clinging to his mindsets like a buoy in the dead of night. While I was out working yesterday she spent the afternoon with some friends of ours and their daughter, which at some point led her to a Barnes & Noble and the acquisition of THE LATEST AND GREATEST DISCOVERY OF MY LIFE!
For the record, Charlie Mackesy is a creative, empathetic and insightful muse and the words he has so ARTFULLY and IMPECCABLY strung together? I. JUST. CAN’T! My daughter and I have now tattooed these mindsets that we’ve already shared for so long onto our hearts forever. This book and it’s wisdoms are our true life song, the depths of all our realities, and EXACTLY “who we are and what we aspire to be”.
Do yourself a favor and gift this book to yourself or someone you love for Christmas. And please, don’t just download it. You simply HAVE to buy the book, hold the book, see the pictures and physically touch and turn the pages in order for it to work its magic! It will perhaps be THE kindest “kindness” you will have ever shown yourself and perhaps even the beginning of your own journey “home”.
Charles Mackesy and his soul are kindred to my spirit and very core of who I am and what I stand for. I cannot say it enough! This book is nothing less than a modern day “Velveteen Rabbit” as far as I’m concerned, and I will treasure these words, excerpts and GIFTS for the rest of my days on this earth … until I finally make it HOME!
In the meantime, Dear GOD, please tell me that I’m right and that HE has finally made it Home. It’s all he ever really wanted. It’s all I’ve ever wanted. It’s all ANY of us have ever wanted … to just get HOME.
