Let's get lost.


without addiction, distraction, or unfamiliar latitude & longitude to blame, we've hit a retrograde. Some call it creative block or lack lustre for living. I like retrograde; reminds me, it's just part of the cycle.

So, I invite you to join me, and not push things uphill. Lets get lost.
(or admit, we are lost, momentarily.)

Simplicity will guide us through.

We'll take comfort in the least we can do. Shower. Make breakfast. Go for a drive (or walk, if we can), wearing big, big sunglasses.

Move things around the home so they please us more.
Really wonder what's important to us.

Because the best thing about losing our sense of self

... is finding the new, more delicious version.

P.S. Happy new moon! That's two new moons in the one month! Little wonder we're bedazzled by a flurry of changes! Embrace your new beginnings and remember how far you've come. It's when you wake up and think, How did I get here? that you know you've been growing really fast.

You only live once. Live here.

feng is blowing wildly through the palms and torrents of shui is falling from the sky here in south Florida.

no matter! I have happy memories of a sunny weekend just passed... and a delicious magazine to read. Click on the below to escape with me...

"Stay. If you think you have to leave your favorite island to return to your "real life," let us say with the utmost respect ... you're utterly wrong. This could be your real life -- a barrier reef outside your front door, a wallaby in your backyard, a vacation smile always on your face. Backing us up are 10 stories from expatriates that you're about to read as well as our own research into the best islands for inviting culture, enviable weather and available real estate. For any age, any career, any family, there is a perfect island to live on."

and another, found on

These ice-cream and sorbet colours can help us to feel a summery glow whatever the weather. If you're in deep winter now, you know what to do ;) .

i.e-Go Get Some Ice-Cream!
coconut, banana, or espresso for me, cherry ripple for husby- what's Your favourite?

Desert dreaming & what Green really means

Desert dreaming tonight. Not missing it at all, just shuffling through the memories, especially the various homes I visited and realising... how much love and comfort we can put into any space, regardless of where it is in the world.

If you live in the Middle East, do you ever miss green trees and forests, or eucalypts and the bush, as I did? Well read this, you'll be amazed:

"Green strikes the eye in such a way as to require no adjustment whatever and is, therefore, restful. Being in the centre of the spectrum, it is the color of balance - a more important concept than many people realize. When the world about us contains plenty of green, this indicates the presence of water, and little danger of famine, so we are reassured by green, on a primitive level."

It's from a member of, and I love her interpretations of colours. If you've time, go visit for the full list; an insightful and enjoyable analysis.

love and blessings to you,

How to be completely desirable

When the student is ready, the teacher will appear. And sometimes in the most un-expected places.

I was on the treadmill, and the minutes were melting away, so absorbed was I in an E!news special "The 10 best (and worst) beach bodies of 2008", when I heard one of the best pearls of wisdom I've heard in while:

"It's not the sizzling body, or the hefty bank account, that makes the truly desirable just so hot, "

our presenter says,

"The single biggest attractiveness factor in all these wanted men and women is confidence."

Isn't that so true?

I would love to report here that at that moment I turned around to find the delicious Mr Mcconaughey behind me, but this would be pure fabrication. If it does happen, however, you'll be the first to know about this example of the Law of Attraction gone wild.

Ahem. If you're not quite as cool-relaxed-smiley-i-am-who-i-am confident as #1 Best Beach Body 2008 according to E!news, Pamela Anderson, here's a feng shui technique to boost yours (confidence, that is).

P.S.. i also learned that Kate Hudson would rather play with her son and write in her Gratitude Journal than party hard with other Hollywood celebs. What a star!

I for one am grateful today to have such a feng shui reason to post these pictures of Matthew on my blog :)) He's got alot more on offer than just confidence, but to me this is the key to his true irresistability.

Welcome to the richest day of the year!

Buy a lottery ticket, and make sure it contains lots of 8's! Today, 8.08.08, has amazing feng shui numerology for prosperity & abundance.

Hence the reason why tonight in Bejing, the Olympics will start at 8.08pm. In Chinese language and many dialects (Cantonese included) the number eight sounds like the word for "wealth". Two 8s (88) also look like the popular Chinese lucky symbol, the Double-Happiness.

This beautiful image comes from the website of Lucy Deslandes, Australian feng shui artist, and is perfectly put together to enhance the Wealth area of a home. Her art here, depicting eight gold fish and one black, is a traditional and very powerful enhancer of wealth energy. It's placement in the South East (in simplest feng shui, the closest right hand corner to the front door) of a home with these other objects will empower a living environment to welcome harmony and abundance.

Click on the picture to visit her site and feast your peepers on beautiful feng shui art. True abundance for the senses!

Feng Shui By The Pool

Ahh! Margarita in hand, juicy novel in the other (Everyone worth Knowing, by Lauren Weisberger), a delicious 32 degree sunshiny day bearing down and the afternoon stretches, long and lazy ahead.

Into my mind float pictures of people I love- Husby hard at work right this minute, friends and family in wet Melbourne and blustery Sydney, female friends, delicate as flowers hiding out in air-conditioned Arabia. I wish they were here.

UH-OH. What's wrong with this statement? If you picked up that it makes me feel kind of bad- you've got it in one. Today, a niggling voice i thought I'd long since left behind whispers in my ear, What have you done to deserve such glorious relaxation?

I turn up the ipod. Drown that voice out! But I still feel uncomfortable. Thinking how tired husby will be, and I've just been relaxing all day... should get writing those postcards...

STOP. As we think, so we attract. This is nowhere near peace of mind. These negative thoughts will create a negative experience. You know how to solve this problem. Okay. Deep breath. Inner self, please guide me.

Inner self: Thank you for inviting me! How do you feel right now?

Me: A little... guilty that I'm surrounded by so much luxury.

Inner self: Okay. How do you want to feel?

Me: I want to feel happy. Pleasant. Content. Deserving. As f I'm making a difference, just sitting here by the pool! I want to feel as if everything is going right. As if everything is going to be alright.

Inner self: That's a great intention! So what thoughts could you begin to think that could make you feel better?

Me: Well... I guess I could think about all the socialites in St Tropez, and heiresses that haven't done anything more than me to deserve an incredible lifestyle, plus they get to do it every day. But that still makes me feel bad. I like feeling deserving.

Inner Self: Hmm. The universe couldn't have delivered this unless you were in vibrational harmony with it; therefore, you always get exactly what you deserve...

Samantha, haven't you learnt to open your arms to ALLOW all the abundance the universe offers, and ask for more, knowing you will never be put in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that everything happens for a reason? Don't you fiercely hold on to your right to squeeze the happiest juice from any situation? You know, you can never "eat little enough to feed all the hungry people in the world!" and "the greatest gift you can bring to this world is your authentic happiness."

Me: Hey, that's right! I've arrived here for a reason, and I do feel so blessed. I am glad one of us is taking advantage of these beautiful facilities. I am so grateful I can sit here and send warm, positive, healing energy to everyone I love and everyone on my prayer list. I am so glad I have this struggle and can share the solution and begin to feel better. I hope that I can inspire others to come sit out by the pool and taste a delicious drink and enjoy this beautiful day. I know this will make me feel so relaxed and loving all afternoon and evening. I really feel as if being out here is taking advantage of the gifts the universe is giving me. Wow, I feel so good, and so positive, and so deserving now! This emotion is creating a beautiful future for me! Thank you, inner being!

It's our peace of mind that creates the feng shui, isn't it?

It'll be okay.

Three little words. One helluva lot of comfort.

It'll be okay.

Thank you, Zooms, for your lovely post. I love to watch your garden grow in Grenada.

She was an artist.. and her life was her canvas.
