Newsletter No.1 : Enlightenment with Yellow

Hello, 2019! Happy New Year! I am feeling really excited about this new year and the possibility of sharing a little more with you. I know that your time is precious so the newsletter is going to be brief and concise. Each month you will receive a curated selection of content related to a specific color. So, here we go!

COLOR of the month: Yellow.

Yellow is warming and invigorating. Yellow has the power to invite you to expand, learn, and see things in a different light. It is a color associated with abundance, positivity, prosperity, happiness, and optimism.

MUSIC Yellow Days

One of my favorite 2018 songs was used in one of my favorite 2018 show. The song is Gap in the Clouds from Yellow Days. The show is Atlanta. Listen here.



Looking for Enlightenment? Two precious books for spiritual wellness and inspiration. Both from Eckhart Thole. You can also read about him here and here.



One of my favorite books of all time is “A Manual for Cleaning Women: Selected Stories” by Lucia Berlin. I am excited about this new selection of short stories: “Evening in Paradise: More Stories”. Can’t wait to start reading it!
