Feng Shui For The Seasons: The Season Of Winter

With winter solstice upon us (December 21, 2020) the season of winter holds many meanings and opportunities to reflect and rest before the coming Spring Equinox in March. One of my life’s most poignant moments came on a winter evening when I was sixteen and living in Michigan where I was born and grew up.  Our family had finished dinner. My mother and sister were busy cleaning and washing the dishes–it was my sister’s turn to help.  My brothers went

Feng Shui for the Seasons: The Season of Fall

I love autumn. Growing up in the midwest with an active, athletic family, I loved, and still love, being in the beauty of autumn: the crunching sound of fallen leaves under my feet, the smell of a burning fire, cashmere sweaters, and football season. Fall is a time for gathering.  It is also a time for shedding as leaves start falling off the trees in preparation for winter hibernation.  Nature gets quieter, sunsets are softer.

The Summer Solstice (begins June 21) is almost upon us. Summer Solstice is the longest day of the year and heralds in color, play, active and light-filled, summer days. I love the mood of summer.

But remember: being organized gives you the gift of time. The question becomes: what will you do with this time?

With Harmony,


Many times after I’ve helped a client organize a beautiful, functional space they’ll ask, “ok, now what”?Being organized, knowing where things go, being able to find things, and having a “to do” list of priorities is one thing, but taking action on these priorities is another challenge altogether. Before taking action comes the very key step of “thinking or processing”.

Here’s how it works:

Step #1: Make your “to do list” then prioritize what needs to be done.

Step #2: Within each priority think about how long it will take you to actually get the priority accomplished and if you need to drive somewhere include drive time. Visualize the process you’ll use for getting your priority done. List any supplies, inventory, or additional resources you’ll need to execute.
