My August vacation this summer took me once again to Monhegan Island, 12 miles off the coast of Maine, where it seemed that I ran into wonderful Feng Shui at practically every turn.
Here, the soaring Cathedral Woods inspired me with the vitality, dignity and flexibility of the Wood element.
For a nice soft example of the Fire element, I found brilliant red roses, fading in the afternoon sun at the end of a hot summer’s day:
As for Metal, just look at these beautiful round stones I was lucky enough to cozy up to one day!
We were surrounded by Water, as far as the eye could see. Here was the scene during a storm: swirling waves, fog and mist, and not much of a view at all.
I was especially excited to come across what might be my dream Feng Shui house (from the outside at least ;))
The house is nestled into a gentle slope with a great view of the water; the front path guides Chi energy around a few turns as it leads to the house; beautiful planters are welcoming to one and all.
Finally, just for fun — I spotted a Feng Shui license plate with much better Chi than the plate I saw last year!
How was your summer? Did you have any Feng Shui adventures you’d like to share?
