  1. Hi, Leonie: Great photo. You embody life’s enjoyment. I tried to download your WORK * PLAY * REST manifesto, but the link was invalid. Are you still sharing?

    1. I’m sorry the links weren’t working – yes I’m still sharing these. I’ve fixed it now for you, so you can download them from the post again.

  2. This is the inspiration I think everyone can use. Thanks for sharing. I am going to post this on my site.

  3. This is a thoughtful gift, thank you Leoni…I have it up in my studio..and my living room…to inspire me. Once again Many Thanks…

  4. Dearest Leoni,

    I’m so happy to have discovered your blog today via a Twitter connection.

    Love this manifesto and am going to share with my readers tomorrow for a Friendly Friday feature.

    Just love your photography and poetry. You’ve inspired me…bookmarked in my inspiration feed!



  5. Oh! I love this!

    I made a manifesto for myself years and years ago but it wasn’t nearly so lovely looking. And then I decided to use the frame for something else and the list was lost in the process.

  6. i love this – i think i add it as the wallpaper on my phone, i’m always looking at that.

    i love the words and the letterpressy look of it (that course you did must have left an ‘impression’) :) x

  7. LOVE this Leonie…thanks for the freebie too. I’m printing now & will hang at home later! You rock lady!!!
