So, take a deep breath . . . exhale slowly . . .  and relax.

“When Mozart was composing at the end of the eighteenth century, the city of Vienna was so quiet that fire alarms could be given verbally, by a shouting watchman mounted on top of St. Stefan’s Cathedral. In twentieth-century society, the noise level is such that it keeps knocking our bodies out of tune and out of their natural rhythms. This ever-increasing assault of sound upon our ears, minds, and bodies adds to the stress load of civilized beings trying to live in a highly complex environment.”  -Steven Halpern

Herbal Tea Thyme

Herbal Tea Thyme

I love making herbal teas. We have lavender, lemon balm, chocolate mint, and an assortment of other types of mint growing in our back yard. Today I went to the garden to get some herbs and found the lemon balm was taking over my beloved chocolate mint plants. Yikes!

Meanwhile, Back in the Kitchen . . .

To make this tea combine equal parts of chamomile, red clover blossoms, calendula, organic roses, rose hips, and stevia for sweetening. Use one tsp. of herbal tea mix per 8 oz cup of boiling water. Steep for 5 minutes, strain and drink.

Happiness is . . . a fragrant cup of herbal tea.

Herbal tea & tea cup set

One of my other favorite tea blends is 1 part Earl Grey loose tea leaves mixed with 1/2 to 1 part organic rose petals. It’s great for those days when you need a little pick me up. Delicious!


I found this trailer promoting The Wizards Tarot by John Bluman and Corrine Kenner posted on YouTube. The Tarot deck has a Harry Potter-ish feel to it and is scheduled for release this fall.

I love the idea of a deck based on a fictional school of magic, in which the Major Arcana cards depict professors, and the Minor Arcana depict students learning and practicing their lessons.

Absolutely beautiful!

“Archetypal dream images and the images of the great myths and religions still have about them a little of the “cloudy” nature of absolute knowledge in that they always seem to contain more than we can assimilate consciously, even by means of elaborate interpretations. They always retain an ineffable and mysterious quality that seems to reveal to us more than we can really know.”  – Marie-Louise Von Franz

When was the last time you really looked at a flower?

Garden Flowers

When was the last time you hugged a friend or a loved one?

When was the last time you had a good laugh?

When was the last time you spent a quiet moment just doing nothing?

Quiet Moments

“We need quiet time to examine our lives openly and honestly. . . spending quiet time alone gives your mind an opportunity to renew itself and create order.”  – Susan L. Taylor
