Drawing & notes on life to brighten your inbox.

“I always like reading your articles. Authentic and reflective. Your original drawings too! ❤️ Makes me pause, wonder and reflect on what's truly important & precious in our lives. And on things we take for granted, until it’s taken away from us. So, keep it up!” ~ Po Lin

Twice a month on Fridays, I share one new drawing and writing about life, delivered to you to brighten your inbox.

That’s 24 new drawings in a year! In each issue for the year, we’ll count down to 24 drawings. I think that’ll be fun. ☺️

You’ll find art (drawing, poetry), actionable tips, short musings, encouraging quotes and thought-provoking excerpts from books or the web.

I hope you’ll be amused! Entertained! Nudged to ponder! And perhaps, feel a connection through a shared life experience.

Most of all, I hope that it’ll speak to you at the right time, just when you need it.

So, come along with me on this journey as I share part of my life experiences and reflections. It’ll be an honour to have you. You can hop off anytime you like.

Here are what my readers are saying:

"You’ve helped me to be mindful of what’s going on in my life. - Ben Mung"

"I’ve really enjoyed and appreciated these emails. They have helped me loads with the challenges I’ve faced recently and have reminded me to—keep it simple, trust God but move your feet, let go of the obsession to control outcomes and enjoy the basic blessings. That’s how it has motivated me this last month or so. – John Cassap"

"Thanks for the gentle reminder that we live one day at a time. We are just so caught up with the fast-moving pace and expectations from people; we’ve forgotten some things we just need to let go! As always, looking forward to your next newsletter. - Regina Tan"

"As I read your HopeMail, I feel like I am reading a chapter from a book of a best-selling author. The words are meaningful and expressed from the heart of the author and yet these words can relate to the readers to go deeper into their hearts and challenge them. Thank you for writing and using your gift so beautifully. - Kevin'

"Thank you, Melinda, for the timely reminder of `waiting room' and the meaningful message. - Jamie'
