Mawson, the big hearted, soul searching teddy bear, is here to help. One of this bright world's few writer-bears, he ponders about how to be one's best especially when feeling a little lost, a little sad.

A modest bear of generous proportions, distinctive in his white fur coat and bow tie, he’s always confident deep in his inner-most stuffing, that things are going to be All Right.

In his first book, he ponders the loss of love. Can you rescue yourself from loneliness when you feel you have been left behind?

"She Ran Away From Love" will also soon be out in the bright world. Mawson helps his friend Frilly in her quest for answers to big questions. "Dreamy Days" will follow.

Mawson Bear There I was napping on my cushion as we bears do until suddenly, with no warning, I woke and was napping no more! It was horrible!

Sometimes…moreI ponder about things and put the ponders into books. But ponders are very shy. They flit about and sort of happen when you aren't ready. Sometimes they don't flit about at all. The thing for writer-bears to do is to find a cushion, or possibly a whole pile of cushions, and nap. Wake and look hopefully about for any stray ponders. If there are still no ponders, look in the fridge for the honey-choco-mello-creams. (less)

“This best time to Nap is ... after the one before.”
Mawson Bear

“Why do cats sleep so much? Perhaps they've been trusted with some major cosmic task, an essential law of physics - such as: if there are less than 5 million cats sleeping at any one time the world will stop spinning. So that when you look at them and think, "what a lazy, good-for-nothing animal," they are, in fact, working very, very hard.”
Kate Atkinson

“This best time to Nap is ... after the one before.”

“They're just weeds, love, they don't belong anywhere.' Her granddaughter stuck out her bottom lip and furrowed her brow.
'That doesn't seem very nice. Everything belongs somewhere.”
Kathryn Hughes, The Letter

“But what attracted me to weeds was not their beauty, but their resilience. I mean, despite being so widely despised, so unloved, killed with every chance we get, they are so pervasive, so seemingly invincible.”
Carol Vorvain, A fool in Istanbul - Adventures of a self denying workaholic

“It developed gradually. Quietly. But I remember the moment I thought to myself, ‘Something is not right with my mind. Something is not right here.’ Admitting this was the first step in my recovery. I didn't need anyone to diagnose me with anxiety or depression to know that this was my struggle. I felt so attached to the feelings, the uncontrollable thoughts, the incessant fear, all of which dictated my everyday experience. I allowed my struggle to become my identity. I didn't know I had any other option.

On good days, I feel hopeful. About life. About my recovery. On bad days, I spend my time thinking that life is no better than death. Despite the mental battles I face each day, I remain resilient. Not just for my loved ones, but for myself. Because deep down, I know I deserve it. The relationship I have with myself is one I refuse to give up so easily.”
