Reflections...on a happy, bold and hopefully long life
Tubing down a river years ago, Sinclair Browning was asked by her niece, “You’ve been on earth a long time. Do you have any words of wisdom for me?” That started the reflections that are now this book. With chapters such as… Three Rules to Stay in Balance Most People Are As Happy As They Decide to Be Create the Life you Want Get a Black Eye Ditch the Negatives Let It Be None of Us Should Control the Remote Browning, often using anecdotes from her own life, offers concrete suggestions on how to live a bold, happy, and hopefully long life.
Feathers Brush My Heart
Losing one's mother is one of the most difficult things that most of us will ever go through. After her own mother died Sinclair Browning began receiving white feathers that she instinctively knew were from her mother, a once aspiring actress who did diaphragm exercises by blowing a white feather into the air while repeating, "I love you." When Browning shared her story on an all women's horseback ride, she as amazed that some of her fellow riders had stories of their own. Feathers Brush My Heart is the result of years of Browning's collecting stories throughout the country from women with varying occupations, religions and ethnic backgrounds. While each story is unique, the common denominator is that they all share an afterlife gift that their mothers' spirits were alive and well.
Feathers Brush My Heart 2
85 stories of people who have received afterlife gifts from lost mothers, fathers, siblings, spouses, aunts, friends, grandparents, and even pets A man killed on 9/11 saves his brother’s life and sends him coins. . . a woman finds an engraved gold pocket watch in a pawn shop 1000s of miles away from where it was given to her grandmother 100 years earlier. . .a woman writes her initials in the sky to let her sister know she’s well. . .these stories are sure to give you goosebumps!
An Ounce of Prevention
Thirty million people ride horses every year. Some of them get hurt. Some even die.
Connected with every one of these numbers is a story. And while some accidents may be unavoidable; Sinclair Browning, co-author of Lyons on Horses, contends that the majority can be prevented with a little knowledge.
She spent years gathering stories from people throughout the country who had accidents with horses. Add her 50 years of horse experience and this is the result, a how to manual that everyone working around horses should have. Just the chapter on “Safe Trailering” is worth the price of the book, not to mention much less expensive than a visit to the Emergency Room.
“Sit in your most comfortable reading chair, with your feet propped up and have a vicarious wreck,” Browning says. "That way you don’t have to have the real thing."
Good advice indeed.

This is the strangest, and one of the most fulfilling, books I have ever written. It’s short, light and yet deep. Weeks after I had finished it, I discovered things that I didn’t know were there. The funny thing is that still happens every time I reread it. Frankly, I think I had some serious outside help on this one.
