there is no home
but your heart.

even the ocean
which draws the poison from my soul
like a poultice

cannot house
the furniture of my life
nor shelter
the delicate china
of my work.

i am indigent
without your love.

the source
of my poems
is not the sea,
not the sky ~

though the breadth
of these is a glimpse
of the face of god…

no, the source
of poetry
is not
an expanse of blue
nor an
unfathomable depth

but instead
the soft fresh green
of the garden
in the chamber
of your heart

where i live.

To prepare your home for next year's astrological workshop, it is helpful to strengthen your basic feng shui by applying the suggestions outlined in Feng Shui Every Day. This book is a simple discourse on the basics of feng shui work and its use will augment all other feng shui treatments. And change your life. If you have already put the information in Feng Shui Every Day into practice, go through the lists again. You will find yourself open to a deeper layer of feng shui work. If you have not utilized the information in Feng Shui Every Day, order your copy now. Astrological treatments are more powerful when basic feng shui is in place.

This combination has been a great comfort to many people during difficult times. and also support literacy programs both in the United States and around the world.

The Peace Shirts products make great gifts that keep on giving. You can also support the movement by printing and posting the free posters from the website.

Thank you thank you thank you for your participation in these endeavors.

P.S. On Monday, I received letters from both the Obamas and Jimmy Carter. President Obama said, "...As we work to address the great challenges of our time, we hope you will continue to stay active and involved..." And President Carter sent a short, handwritten note of thanks. It was quite thrilling.

Art and Poetry

Blue Period: there is no home is just released. Blue Period is a series of letterpress prints with hand-painted watercolor details, each illuminating a different poem. there is no home is a sensitive and poignant poem that resonates deeper with each reading (see sidebar). It is the third in the Blue Period series, a limited edition of fifty ~ 100% cotton and acid free paper ~ each print one-of-a-kind, $28. Purchase print. It makes a wonderful gift.

In traditional feng shui, written poetry is regularly used to uplift the spirit and generate grace. Because of the blue color of the prints in the Blue Period series, not only is this a great basic feng shui treatment but also a great augmentation to any water-element treatment. Art and poetry can improve your life in a wonderful way. and wish you every charm of the Autumn season. Thank you for your love and support in our work.
