Praise for the Brainripples blog

“This was a great interview, and a terrific way to make the acquaintance of Ester and her exceptional work. Thank you!” – Michelle Wood, Tai Chi Instructor, Be Well With Michelle

“This is a well-written, down-to-earth review, for what seems to be a grounding book. I would say clarity of the mind and heart can occur when someone has direct encounters with the natural world. Also a good reminder for me to be outside and away from technology more often, as opposed to sitting at a computer in this day and age. The review is written in such a way as to make me want to read this book.” – Jacob Salzer, Technical Writer

“Hey, Jade, I love what you got out of my story in The Lascaux Review. Thanks for being such a kind and close reader and for mentioning my work to others. I appreciate that.” Raymond Philip Asaph, Author
