It is what it is, where it is
on January 23, 2006
I confess: I am a person of clutter. I am not a feng shui* devotee, indeed, this book was my introduction. For me, Jeff Campbell's 'Clutter Control : Putting Your Home on a Diet' is still The Best, but this book has its moments, and is a good refresher for New Year's resolutioners. Sorry, Shui sisters. I haven't got time, money or inclination to build a Bagua octagon of Chez Tundra - so my "missing gua" must remain AWOL. The kitchen is where the kitchen is - not to be confused with my Home Office or the bath. Still, the remaining chapters of Skye's Shui offer inspiration and reinforcement for ever-ongoing vigilance against the accumulation of clutter. /TundraVision, Amazon Reviewer
* For those as new to the Chinese art of Feng Shui as I, (I live up here in the Tundra,) the author explains: "literally translated, feng shui means wind and water. Wind and water, as we know, can be harnessed to produce energy. Feng shui also allows us to control and direct natural forces and utilize their energy. The principle force fend shui considers the ch'i (pronounced chee), the life-giving energy of the universe that flows through everything - our homes, the Earth, our bodies." So, the convergence for this reviewer is inspiration to shovel more stuff out the door!
