It’s Release Day! Fallen Ink by Carrie Ann Ryan ~ Excerpt

 

Mace was making a fucking mistake, and he didn’t care. Adrienne tasted like sin and seduction, and he knew if he stopped kissing her, he’d let his mind wander to what the hell he was doing, and he’d fuck up everything even more. 

 

So, he kept kissing her. 

 

And then he took it deeper. His fingers tangled in her hair, and she slid her hands up his chest, digging into his flesh. Their moans were lost in the wind and rain outside as it beat down on the bathroom window, and he couldn’t help but explore her mouth. 

 

He’d thought about doing this countless times; thought about tasting her, having her. He’d imagined himself licking up her neck and down between her breasts before devouring her everywhere else. He’d thought about how she’d arch into him as he plunged into her, and they’d both come, panting and sweaty. 

 

He’d thought about all of it because he’d been attracted to Addi from day one, but had never wanted to hurt their friendship. That was still the case because she was the most important adult in his life, the strongest relationship he had with another person besides Daisy. 

 

So why was he still kissing her? Mace was about to pull back when she leaned in closer, her breasts pressing into his chest. 

 

And when her hands slid around to his back to cling to him, he knew there would be no getting out of this mistake just then.

 

They’d deal with the consequences later because that’s what they did. They were strong enough to deal with anything, and right then, all he wanted to do was bury himself inside his best friend and never stop. 

 

So, he didn’t.

 

 

The Montgomery Ink series continues with a spin-off in Colorado Springs, where a familiar Montgomery finds her place in a new tattoo shop, and in the arms of her best friend.

 

Adrienne Montgomery is finally living her dreams. She’s opened a tattoo shop with her brother, Shep, and two of her cousins from Denver and she’s ready to take the city by storm with her art—as long as she can handle the pressure. When her new neighbors decide her shop isn’t a great fit for the community, however, she’ll have to lean on the one person she didn’t expect to fall for along the way…her best friend. 

 

Mace Knight takes pride in two things: his art and his daughter. He knows he’s taking a risk by starting over in a new shop with the Montgomerys, but the stakes are even higher when he finds himself wanting Adrienne more than he thought possible. 

 

The two fall fast and hard but they know the rules; they can’t risk their friendship, no matter how hot it is between the sheets and how many people try to stand in their way.

Arts and Kids Mindfulness, Book Excerpt from Nataša Nuit Pantović in Sunday Times
Conscious Parenting: Mindful Living Course for Parents - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Arts and Kids Mindfulness

Arts and Kids Mindfulness, Excerpt of Conscious Parenting Mindful Living Course for Parents (Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training Book 5) by Nataša Nuit Pantović

When children are physically active and creative, they tend to focus better and work more enthusiastically with the rest of the curriculum.

Arts, sport, music and drama are often viewed as fun extra-curricular activities for children but are given less importance compared with core subjects such as English, science, or mathematics.

The arts should be taken seriously as a source of inspiration, as a way of life
- Nataša Pantović

Nevertheless, numerous studies prove that practising arts, music and sport from an early age improves brain activity, self-confidence, and gives students an overall sense of well-being.

Students who consistently prac­tise sport, arts, music, drama, and dance, are usually more creative and innovative and also perform better academically.

Brain Magic Mindfulness Training in Sunday Times Conscious Creativity Excerpt
Conscious Creativity: Mindfulness Meditations - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Tapping the brain’s magic

With traditional educational methods – its curriculum and its focus on examinations – students quickly lose motivation and interest for science and its magic.

With traditional educational methods – its curriculum and its focus on examinations – students quickly lose motivation and interest for science and its magic.

The human brain is truly extraordinary. A healthy brain has some 200 billion neurons. The conscious mind controls our brain for only five per cent of the day, whereas the subconscious mind has control of our thoughts 95 per cent of the time.

A human being has 70,000 thoughts per day
- Natasa Pantovic

A human being has 70,000 thoughts per day. The brain requires up to 20 per cent of the body’s energy despite being only two per cent of the human body by weight.

Somewhere within our brain we have a potential for higher mathematics, complex physics, art, and amazing richness of thoughts, feeling, and sensations.

Shifting Educational Goals Conscious Parenting Book Excerpt in Times of Malta
Conscious Parenting: Mindful Living Course for Parents - Nataša Pantović Nuit

Shifting Educational Goals Times of Malta
Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view.
Education should teach children how to ask appropriate questions, how to analyse a problem, stimulate a desire to learn, and flexibility to consider different points of view.

One of the biggest problems of education today is that the ‘factory model’ of teaching: the top-down approach and the rewards-and-punishments ap­proach, limit students’ ability to contribute with their imagination and creativity.

[quote]In the Finnish educational model, active learning is taken seriously. Schoolchildren do not sit at their desks memorising
- Natasa Pantovic[/quote]
The system needs a shift in focus: from one that teaches children a curriculum, to the one that inspires lifelong learning. Education has to shift from conveying knowledge in a static curriculum package to enabling teachers and students to view knowledge as a dynamic entity that is constantly changing.

Both Waldorf and Montessori learning methods establish a collaborative environment without tests, with the child’s learning and creativity at the centre of the focus. They go against the grain of traditional educational methods.
