LOVE IN THE TIME OF COVID
Author Meredith Gaston radiates all things love in her latest book, Choosing Love: Living Our Lives to Nourish Our Hearts
There’s an undeniable serenity stepping into Meredith Gaston’s exquisite home. The house itself is a sight to behold. The interior is filled with delicate and beautiful objects. Sticky humid Brisbane summer feels worlds away upon entry to Gaston’s home studio.
With that, we spent hours talking about Gaston’s latest work over rose tea and an appropriately heart-shaped banana bread.A unique and internationally acclaimed artist and author, Gaston’s beautifully illustrated book is a love letter to the self, consisting of meditations, reflections and heartfelt prose.
Choosing Love offers 20 chapters that evoke love in every form. Gaston adds “When we nourish ourselves, we can be there for others, with compassion and understanding. When we allow ourselves to shine, we grant others permission to do so.”This is one of those books that can change your life for the better, especially in this post March 2020 world. Gastons book is the positive injection of a read that we all need at the moment. A reminder to open our hearts and choose love each and every day.
Choosing Love: Living Our Lives to Nourish Our Heart is published by Hardie Grant Books and is available now and at all book shops.
