White Violet

The white violets are here, to the east, opposite my back door. And what a joy their sweet and tender scent is. White Violet is an essence I use a lot; it is perfect for those who are highly sensitive. I have been playing Beethoven's Pastoral Symphony every day this week and I have been charmed by the conductor, Karabits' sensitivity. He changes the emphasis on one tiny note within a phrase which brings the whole symphony alive in a new way. Those tiny details, like the white violet, bring so much strength to life.

I'm sure many of us have seen the amazing dance between Venus and Jupiter that has been in the night skies for the last few weeks. The exact conjunction was a week ago on March 15th. I am lucky enough to live in a house that is in perfect alignment at this time of year, with the sun setting exactly in the west. What a wonderful energy the equinox brings: it is easier to get up in the morning and the earth and sun are in perfect balance. We also have the added bonus of Venus and Jupiter in our skies, just look west, and remember your camera when the new moon appears..

The Tao has arrived

You can't rush the Tao, a dear friend of mine said. And here it is. This was recorded in a great flow in 2009 and it seems that this is the moment that it is ready for the world. Coming into Itunes and Amazon in the next week or so. I have a few copies myself for those who can't wait.
