I know, I know… I mentioned a word that many of you believe should never be used in the same sentence as “calm”.  (Was that “oxymoron” I heard you muttering?) Just take a few deep breaths.  You’ll come good in a moment. I promise. Firstly I must tell you, I know about your attempts at […]

What is it about the Holidays that make people go a little crazy? There is so much to look forward to; gathering with friends and family, delicious food, gift giving, an exquisitely decorate home, and my favorite – greeting cards that roll in filled with kind sentiments from loved ones near and far. December hasn’t […]

It is only when we silence the blaring sounds of our daily existence that we can finally hear the whispers of truth that life reveals to us, as it stands knocking on the doorsteps of our hearts. ~K. T. Jong If your life is anything like mine, you’re stuck in the busyness that comes with […]

Filed under Sound Space

I truly was in need of inspiration this month to plan my upcoming 40th Birthday. I’ve never been a big fan of the ‘milestones’, preferring to live in the moment wherever I could, (or stick my fingers in my ears until it went away J) and not wait until… Forty to have my life mean […]

Filed under Spa Space

One of the wonderful things about essential oils is their ability to affect our mood. And as the holiday season gets into full swing (along with end of school year functions!) we could all use a lift. What better way to feel calmer, less stressed and more able to cope than by filling your room […]

Spiritual Renewal

Filed under Spiritual Space

This month’s topic is an interesting one. On reflection, I don’t feel qualified to talk about planning since I rarely do it and never in relation to spiritual matters! I’d much rather go along with the flow of the Universe. Renewal however, I can certainly speak to. Considering oneself ‘spiritual’ is hardly the end of […]

Loss and Renewal. A Tale in Haiku.

November 9, 2009 by

Break Up Wilting in the dust Discovered in betrayal Soiled love lies broken Despair Despair and regret Spikes of loss puncture each day A lament of pain Autopilot Mute, blinded and numb There suspended on keen wires Hangs my acid heart Recovery Gentle velvet tip Soft green bud of renewal Sees the world as new […]

The Christmas Book

November 2, 2009 by  
Filed under Kitchen Table Space

I’m sitting at my kitchen table, an oasis of calm and clear space surrounded by the entire contents of the living room bookshelves. Books, picture frames, CD’s, DVD’s and ornaments are piled up in teetering plastic storage boxes topped with potted plants and lampshades. We’ve cleared out the living room to lay a new wooden […]
