subtitle finalized . . .

voila, the final version is tranquilista: mastering the art of enlightened work and mindful play. the winner is . . .  sallieann westbrook! a fun play on the oh-so-popular julia child book mastering the art of french cooking.

i received over 80ish individual suggestions (some with numerous subtitles), narrowed it down to 25ish, and was SO impressed with everyone's creativity. i'm delighted to honor the lovely sallieann.

in addition, i'd like to give a BIG shout out to the following readers who shared grand ideas and put a lot of time into providing oodles of suggestions:

shavonne readus * lia * lisa wilson * diane cesa * robyn michelle-lee

merci beaucoup from the bottom of my heart for your inspired ideas! some of the subtitles leave me wanting to craft a book to fit your beautifully written phrase. xo
