This month, I have been in need of soothing. Not the soothing of a facial or massage. Nor the soothing of good food, good company, good wine. Something… different. Something… deeper. Prayer. Yes. Sometimes, simply escape into a good book. Often, a hug. And there have been many moments when music was the soothing mechanism […]

I think it starts with desire; for something new, for something different, for something that will be a true reflection of you, and that is when the magic begins.

When I saw the topic for this month initially I wasn’t sure what I could write about that would relate to Feng Shui.

There is so much ‘wonder’ in the Universe around us and I wonder if we take enough time out to appreciate it!? Do we notice: –  the sun rising, carving its arc across the sky and setting with the same unhurried pace every day no matter what mayhem is being created by the humans beneath it […]

“Who’d like to go to the Magic Tree?” says my uncle. A chorus of ‘me, me me’ bounces off the wood panels of the kitchen walls and we scramble to pull on our boots and get ready for the trip. We pile into the back of the old station wagon, fighting over who gets to […]
