    I’m a big Paulo Coelho’s fan and I don’t know if you heard about his blog
    I’ve started as a fan and now I’m collaborating with him and thought that you would like to enter his universe.
    Check the blog.
    if you want, or subscribe to his newsletter
    You’ll see a community of warriors of light sharing ideas, dreams and most importantly following their personal legend.


    In the intervals between battles, the Warrior of Light rests.

    (Manual of the Warrior of Light)

    Merry Christmas!


    Thanks, Aart. 🙂
    Will check the links out soon.

    Happy New Year!
