I welcome the good:

new yoga studio and

going dairy free

.

Many friends and family know that this has not been an easy year for me and I have certainly had my days of feeling sorry for myself. But I’m trying to change that. Could positive energy attract the good? If I change my energy could my problems all of a sudden dissipate? Does like attract like and good attract good? I am not sure but I do know that entering a nurturing atmosphere (the lovely yoga studio) and returning to a diet that my body has always appreciated will bring me joy one way or another. Namaste everyone!

Do you believe in Feng Shui? I do. At least I think I do. As Wikepedia states, Feng Shui is “an ancient Chinese system of aesthetics” often used during building and interior design.  Good design will bring good energy and conversely, bad design can bring misfortune and bad energy.  I know little of the laws of Feng Shui but I do know that my house lacks balance. I have no idea how to arrange furniture. Somehow I do not have that innate sense despite graduating college with a painting degree. As former New Yorkers who spent most of our adult years living in tiny apartments, my husband and I also do not have enough furniture to fill up the house we live in. So as we accumulate pieces slowly, much of the house still looks bare. And I feel this energy, this bareness sometimes. But today… the bistro set arrived. A lovely little table with flower patterns and two chairs that I got on sale at a local garden store. I set a pot of Rosemary down on the table while I sat and had lunch with Penny this afternoon. Ah!!!! Energy. And while much of the porch is still bare the energy is starting to flow.

What does peace look like?

I wonder as I drink wine

and eat apple pie.
