"Ultimately, we have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world." Etty Hillesum -
An Interrupted Life

Stressed out?

Just lost a pile of money in the stock market?

Never had any money to start with?

Worried sick over the election coming up?

Relationship problems?

Kids driving you crazy?

Work has become too much work?

Have more balls in the air than a circus juggler?

Help is on its way, a new web-based business designed to help you find and create, more quiet spaces in your life and mind.

Nancy, who just happens to be one of my cousins, has found amazing artists, chosen items that are locally made and eco-friendly, and brings to this business a unique blend of retail and counseling experience. You can do it all on your own, or work with Nancy to design something special, something helpful, and something quiet.

For those living in the Portland area, Nancy will be hosting two trunk shows, Sunday October 19th from 2-5:30, and the following Sunday, the 26th, also from 2-5:30, at 2532 NW Upshur. You can get more information, and/or leave comments with Nancy directly on her website, Creating Quiet Spaces.

Now, take this and bookmark/make it a favorite - it's not Google friendly right now, but steps are being taken to correct that. Not Google friendly? Not an option.

What a great idea for a business. Personal sanctuary is so important, especially right now.

Portland! Not exactly a hop skip and a jump from here, but as you say, google has to be our friend.

I like that 'shape your dwelling'!
