Today’s hike was fun, then I got hit in the back of the head with my car door from the wind. I guess life always finds a way to balance everything out!😂🙈 #ohwell

Getting this busy guy to hold still for a photo was easy when we asked him to hug his baby sister. Sweetest. Thing. ❤️

I stepped on jade when I took this photo. So simple yet beautiful. The color has always drawn to me. I usually don’t look at what I step on but I believe every thing gives off it’s own energy, maybe my wavelengths knew and I subconsciously knew. So therefore, this photo is now special ✨

#GoodMorning and #HappyFriday!! Tonight I begin another epic adventure with my best friend. What could be better than that? #letsbeadventurers #seekmagic #roadtrip #takethescenicroute

Thanks Andrés by your pic!!
This edit was quite challenging, I took the photo right before sunrise, so the clouds had great colors but there was little light on the city. I had to boost the shadows up a lot while bringing down the light in the sky 🕍💜

This afternoon and evening I’ve been editing and watching Blue Planet Two 💛 Not every day is going to be glamorous or exciting. Most days it’s me doing exactly this by myself. It can be lonely. (Poor Ciaran usually has to listen to me ramble when he comes home most days) But I wouldn’t trade it for a more “conventional” job. .

I’ve been using the kitchen as my personal dance studio, I guess that’s the upside of not owning a dinner table. Plus I don’t mind watching my new binge while eating yummy food 🌸✨

Loving my flowers I got from the market on Sunday, I hope they stay alive another week. The eucalyptus is going in the shower when they’re done being youthful :)

At the moment we're learning about saying please, thank you and excuse me. I've been calling them the 'magic words'. This morning as I passed Reishi her morning mushroom elixir I asked her what the magic words were thinking she'd say thank you and instead she said ABRACADABRA!  The magic word...Yep she's right. My hope is that she keeps on remembering the magic wherever she may roam. Abracadabra...so be it, as it is. Thanks for this magical photo Ninja.

Be soft. 
Do not let the world make you hard. 
Do not let pain make you hate. 
Do not let the bitterness steal your sweetness. 
Take pride that even though the rest of the world may disagree, 
you still believe it to be a beautiful place.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

After 60 days, flying from Manchester, UK to Sydney to Brisbane, driving thousands of kilometres from Brisbane to Sydney to Canberra to Melbourne, flying to Brisbane to Sydney to Perth to Brisbane, and 50+ events in bookshops and libraries and theatres and bars and restaurants along the way, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart Australian Tour is over.
I've never known anything like it: the exhaustion, the joy, the compassion, the connection, the fear, the empathy, the love, the pain, the courage, the recognition, the meaningfulness, the hurt, the strength, the challenge, the gratitude, the elation. Touring around a fraction of my homeland for my first novel and all it has entailed has been the time of my life.
The response to Lost Flowers is more than I ever dreamed or knew could be possible.
Dear readers, booksellers and bookshops, thank you for coming out to support Alice Hart, and me. Thank you for taking the time to read Lost Flowers, to share it, and for giving it a home in your lives and on your shelves. Thank you for being a massive part in making my lifelong dream emerge from its chrysalis more capable of flying than I dared imagine. I am very grateful. To those of you who have sent me a message or an email, thank you so much for taking time to get in touch. I haven’t had the time or space I’ve needed to reply, but I will as soon as I can.
To everyone in my astonishing @harpercollinsaustralia publishing team, and my agents at Zeigeist, @literaryagent1, you sure know how to transform a life. Thank you.
Onwards we go. May we have courage. May we take heart.

🧘‍♀SOUL MATES 🧘‍♂|| Legend has it there’s an intangible string of fate that binds two people destined to be together. Those connected are bound regardless of time, place or circumstance. Nothing can break the invisible thread between two people who are meant to be together.

Some say that the color of this string (if we could see it) would be red. This is, I assume because when we think of love we strongly associate it with the color red. The legend says that this string was tied to our ankles by the gods and helps us in some ways.

I guess you could say this is similar to the whole ‘twin flame’ or ‘soulmate’ idea but makes it seem more likely to find your other half since you are already bound to one another, literally.

If the cord becomes stretched or tangled it will not break. However, it may take a bit longer for you to find your other half if this happens, it does not make things impossible. Your other half will always make their way to you somehow.

Nothing will affect the string. It will bind you two together regardless of the mental or physical distance between you. 💜 Do you believe in fate? 💜

Seeing the homes Alice is finding in readers’ lives is something my heart will never tire of.
This photo of @fireandjoy’s, of Nirrimi reading Lost Flowers beside her babe reading Lemony Snicket in a camper van, is a smorgasbord for my soul. So much about it reminds me of my little life on the road in Canada and the US when I was a kid, my nose always in a book by my mum’s side or gazing at the ancient landscapes outside.
I spent my last hour in WA with Nirrimi. She met me at the airport just so we could have tea together, which really was more about having cuddles and giggles and chatting grief and trauma and wonder and words and survivorship and hope and anxiety and love and dreams. I got on the plane feeling full of gratitude, and a craving for more. The language of women is a powerful story in itself.

You guys, this girl is busy. I have so much editing to do, book making, uploading, emailing, scheduling etc etc to do its hard to keep up every now and then.

You are all amazing and why I keep doing this 💛 I just might be a bit slow to respond 😂🙈😭✌🏼

Final stop before I go...
Last year, when I shared news of the Lost Flowers West Coast tour, from the other side of the world the magical publisher, writer, and human @forestavenuepress messaged to suggest I might like to meet up with her friend Per Henningsgaard, who lectures in publishing, writing, and editing at Curtin Uni in Perth. Believing in the power of connections and saying yes, I followed up. 
Fast forward nearly a year to just a few days ago, when I arrived at Curtin Uni campus and spent a couple of hours talking with Per's students, doing my best to share with them things that I found really mattered and really helped me when I was a writing student. Which mainly was to demystify the writing and publishing relationship as much as possible. A lot of it is made of things that are out of our control, like luck and timing, but neither of those mighty forces can have any impact if we don't first do the work and make The Thing. That's where it all starts, the making of The Thing. I loved my time with them, and the conversations we had about the very real, gritty muck of what it means to not give up on our pursuit of living a creative life. Thank you for having me Per and students @curtinuniversity, and thanks for letting me know my words had resonance @boogiemanbooks!
Walking out into the car park I noticed this incredible banksia mural by @amokisland on campus: banksia leaves all around, flower in full bloom, seed pod open and high. As if in perpetual promise. As if to say, everything is possible. Even being thoroughly exhausted, I drove away beaming.

'Are you okay? Are you lost?' a friendly voice asked.
Alice turned to see a young woman carrying a toddler on her hip.
'I'm fine. Thanks,' Alice replied. 
The woman smiled, while the toddler cooed at Pip. At the traffic lights she set the toddler down to push the pedestrian button.
‘Sorry,' Alice called after her, compelled by nerves to ask for an answer she already knew. 'Is that still the library across the road?'
'Yep, sure is.' The woman and toddler waved as the light turned green.
- The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, chapter 28.
Green bird flower. Meaning: my heart flees.
Widespread on sandy soils in mulga communities and on sand dunes, this shrub bears soft hairs on thick and pithy branches. The flower resembles a bird attached by its beak to the central stalk of the flower head; yellow-green, streaked with fine purple lines.
💚
In King's Park, Perth, I saw green birdflower for the first time with my own eyes last week. I don't mind saying that my knees jellied with love and wonder at the sight after having studied and written about them, weaving them into Alice's story, for the last four years. They are more exquisite than I'd imagined, brought to life in Lost Flowers by the equally exquisite talents of @edithrewa.

Right after this photo I RAN up a sand mountain... I didn’t want to, but I knew that if I went up there, it would be WAY worth the hard work. And let me tell ya, it wasssss!! it was so worth it. What are you doing that’s hard, but you KNOW for certain it will be worth it in the end? Keep going, friend. You’ve already made it through Monday. You’ve got this.

Alexa and Mike not only got engaged, but Mike has secretly been in touch with me for weeks leading up to this past Saturday. They were surrounded by their families and a whole lot of love. Then immediately after we raced between rainstorms with the ducks and deer to document their love. This my friends, is what I was made for 🖤(more in the story!) .

Our new neighbors had us over for dessert last night. I picked up local strawberries and gluten free lemon pound cake from the farmers market and made a dairy free cream cheese dip sweetened with baby oranges 🍊

The second last event of my Lost Flowers Australian tour was a conversation with the lovely and insightful writer and bookseller @incredibleramblingelimy at @thegrovelibrary in Perth, where I clearly had a woeful, unsmiley time.
💫
It was a beautiful evening with an enthusiastic and engaged audience, who asked the best questions at the end. One of which was, how do you turn daydreaming into a novel? I wish I could have given an easier answer but in my experience it’s mostly one thing: committing. To showing up. To discipline. To wade through the muck of inner storytelling narrated by self doubt and fear, and stay close to imagination, to magic, to wonder. And stay there through all the drafts from utterly shit to sparkling clean, without any surety of outcome, purely because dreams are worth working hard to honour.
💫
I also had the delight of finally meeting in skin and hugging the gobsmackingly talented Kylie from @xaviahcollections who made the two Australian native flower collar necklaces I’ve been wearing around the world for the last year, especially the commissioned desert pea piece Kylie hand painted for me based on a photo I had stuck to the wall of my office while I was writing Lost Flowers. Because dreams are worth working hard to honour.
❤️
Thank you to everyone who came along, and to everyone at the library and @westbooks who worked hard out of hours to put the event together. Thank you so much for supporting Alice Hart, and me.

HOLY SHIT.

“Winton is also the only male author, with the other 9 titles in the top 10 all written by women. Holly Ringland’s The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, which debuted in 10th spot last month, has shot up to 2nd place...”
😱😱😱
Dear Readers, look what you did!! THANK YOU READERS AND BOOKSELLERS AND STORY LOVERS!! Thank you @harpercollinsaustralia.

August morning, 2015.
Manchester, England. My kitchen table.
In pjs: @thisisbrooked, on tour for her debut novel, Lost & Found, and me, grappling with the first draft of Lost Flowers, and all the self doubt, self loathing and not enoughs that come with daring greatly. 
Plan for the day: get dressed, go out exploring, do a bit of writing in a cafe together. Order snacks. Go for a walk. Come home. Family couch time. 
Reality for the day: stayed in pjs at kitchen table making our cups of tea as bottomless and endless as our winding, soaring, deepening conversation, about dreams and grief and hope and magic. About what might become of life if we’re brave enough to show up and risk failing, in the name of giving ourselves experience and process. About how the journey really is the vein of gold, even though a successful outcome feels like it’s a river. About how important it is to let ourselves dream wildly, without ceilings and foreboding.  About the power of even just one trusted person holding your hands and saying, I believe you can.
🌸
May evening, 2018.
Perth, Australia. In armchairs, centre stage, at @beaufortstreetbooks with 60 booklovers and friends.
Me, in conversation with Brooke, who read Lost Flowers FOUR TIMES and prepared ten pages of notes for our chat; she possibly knows Alice better than I do. 
Plan for the evening: share our stories. 
Reality for the evening: the mind-blowing magic of feeling connected to strangers through story, so grateful for courage, and the generosity of this woman I am lucky to love and be loved by.
🌸
Thank you to everyone in Perth who came out to support Alice Hart, and me, and indie bookshops and writers and books. Thank you Jane and @sarahlovespicardy for putting on such an incredibly special event. Thank you from the seedlings at the bottom of my heart.

And just like that, it’s the middle of Spring. Last I was here it was still Winter. A couple of months has pass, but my need for another space where to share different sides of me is still here. So hello, how are you? How things going in your life?

✈️Flying to Australia TODAY!! I got these @away suitcases for Christmas and I’m so excited to put them into action. You should have seen my luggage situation prior (one teal plaid roller I got from a JcPenny sale in 2011 that my dad ran over at least once with his car 😂). Can you say upgrade!? Also, the best part is that my fiancé @christophertoro_ is coming along! He’s attending @tonyrobbins Date With Destiny while I’m supporting the Creative team on-site ❤️🙏 There will for sure be some great barrier reef play time in the mix too🌴🌊😊 Can’t wait to share with you guys! Follow along on IG stories 💕First stop: Brisbane AU!🐨
