Reawakening the Spirit: the Art of Authentic Living

For a long time time I have been contemplating how I would integrate my lifelong skills with my many passions in life. I am now happy to announce the creation of my new site which is a culmination of my lifelong pursuits and the direction I wish for my work to take. 

While I love design and being creative, I love being out in nature as well and helping this planet to evolve into a higher state of being. My new site is a collection of offerings of products and services that I feel accurately reflect the body of knowledge and experience that I hold, as well as the direction I wish to take with my life and my business.

What My Gardens Have Taught Me

My gardens have evolved so much over time and taught me a great deal about life and myself. Gone is the need to control everything in a precise, neat manner. I have found that when I set my intention by planting my desires and allow Nature to unfold her deep wisdom and artistry, sometimes the most amazing landscapes can appear. At times you need to be patient when nothing seems to be happening or when things are not quite as organized or beautiful as you would like, but the results will always surpass your limited view of things.

Moving through Fear: a Recent Journey

Those who contemplate the beauty of the Earth find reserves of strength that will endure as long as life lasts. ~Rachel Carson
Sometimes we take journeys without knowing their outcome.  We forge ahead led by some innate knowledge or compass that defies our intellect.  I've had alot of these experiences throughout my life often not thinking ahead about the consequences of my actions and sometimes even questioning my own sanity.  There have been times that I have caused myself additional hardship or responsibilities, and other times that there was no doubt in my mind that I was divinely guided to do something unusual or travel to a certain destination.

The Crystal Heart: a Mirror to the Soul

The other day I was holding a large crystal heart in my hand and suddenly, quite unexpectedly it dropped onto my granite table.  Although a short moment, I cringed at the thought of the damage that might have occurred.  Surprisingly and to my relief, nothing happened. 
Later I reflected on the symbolism of this moment.  I thought about how crystals when they fracture actually allow more light to come through and rainbows of color will often emanate from within them.

The Gift of Sight: The Arrival of Samson

"The eyes are not responsible when the mind does the seeing."  --Publilius Syrus
This story started out as an article about homeopathy and herbs until it evolved into something quite different as I began to realize that the message given to me was an even greater one.  It's the story about how even the greatest of challenges can give us new lessons, insights, and opportunities when we chose tosee  them in such a way.  Everything is a matter of perspective.
