Moving to a new Host

Today I’ve made a decision to buy this baby a domain of its own. This is because I’ve been seeing a lot of readers lately, and maybe it’s time to move up.

So there’s going to be a lot of learning and moving data from here to there, and I’ll update you all on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

In the meantime, I’ll be posting a few more articles for you guys, especially some Christmas-related meditation practices and vegan ideas.

You all have a safe week now! Cheers!
