The Archer & Alchemist

A story How I found The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho It was one of those days … exhausted and all I wanted to do was get home to my children. Anyone working in the #Media will understand what I mean. The steps seemed to take forever to get to the station as I walked Calverley road, down Mountain Pleasant only to hear the whistle of the train about to leave as I jumped on.

Was it mistake? Was going in the right direction? Fortunately, I would not understand until I climbed off the train at the next station.

I had been travelling to the coast! There must be some blessing behind this, now it would take even longer to get home.

I walked through the door to the little wooden waiting room to find a book. “The Alchemist” a book I loved reading.

As “The Archer” has been launched another book to add to my list.

“The Society of Ordinary Prophets and Poets is a skillfully constructed journey of reflection. The author has layered emotional responses to cleverly crafted stimulus. Your own attachment to the words is deeply personal.

The opportunity to respond to your feelings within the book allows you to quickly re-count and re-visit the path you take through the book.


I would highly recommend this book to support self-reflection.

Our lives are often complex and at times confusing, this compilation facilitates the finding of clarity.


Thank you Natasha, this is a gift that we will all cherish.”
