I left my heart in
It is true... Alaska has stolen my heart. The journey north was
nothing short of epic. I had heard horror stories about the road to Alaska,
fondly known as the Alcan hi-way. I had trepidation about being stranded, alone
in the wild with bears breathing down on my very small convertible with a soft
top. To be honest, failure was not an option. So, I pressed on, the journey was
beyond words, Alaska is truly like no place on Earth. It took five days to get
from Vancouver to Alaska, on the way I did see bears by the side of the road! I
saw moose, bison, mountain goats, eagles soaring high and my spirit soared high
along with them. Looking at glaciers in the Prince William Sound, watching
playful sea otters in crystal clear water. For many hours at a stretch, I was
the only person on the road. I feel I have been transformed, everything else
pales in comparison. Like having to drive the speed limit! Many times I have
complained about the politics of this country, though, driving through America,
I can't imagine myself living anywhere else. This land is truly great. The
journey was made special by my daughter joining me for the leg home. Spending
time with my son on my way north and then on my way home. Seeing my friends in
Minnesota and family in Vancouver, getting to eat Indian food...what else could
Your recycle tip.
Recently a dear friend
generously gave me two books on recycling ( "Green Chic" and "The Environment
Equation"). Both books have a ton of great ideas as to how to live a greener
life. For example: Using a car wash is more eco friendly, than, washing your car
by hand. Drying your clothes on a drying rack will save you money as well as
reducing the amount of energy used. The dryer, after the refrigerator is the
single most energy consuming appliance in your home.
Shui tip for this month.
It's very important to have good door health.
Any door in your home brings opportunities into your life. Doors have to open
freely, no squeaking, no chipped paint, no scraping. A loose door or a door that
sticks and a wobbly door won't do either. All of the above will hinder your
ability to attract positive 'chi' (energy) into your life. So, get busy with
veggie oil to lubricate the door hinges and repair any unsightly doors...
As always, I am happy to get e-mails from you. So, please do let me
hear from you. I enjoy your comments, ideas, or just a simple hello. A special
thanks to friends here at home who stayed in touch with me. To those who took
care of my home, mail and plants. And to all of you who sent me your well wishes
for my journey north.
With my cool wishes for these hot, dog, days of
wish to be removed from this e-newsletter, please let me know
and I would be
happy to oblige.
