What a wonderful blog you have. I'm going to enjoy reading it very much. Your photos are glorious. The name Windrock is fantastic - slightly mystical with a suggestion of ancient wisdom, yet also powerful. my visits here will be something to look forward to.
Hey Selma, I'm so happy that you stopped by! I appreciate your sweet words ... thank you.
Susan, I have always been curious about scents, but I know I'd get completely sucked in!! Those little bottles remind me of artist inks, and I love to have them just lined up in front of me full of potential... There are too many scents I love to decide where to start! LOL! And I'm sure that would pull me into candles and body oils and potpourris and soaps and sachets and... How do you do it? I start drooling when I go into fabric stores and art stores and craft stores, let alone a scent store!! Aaaaah! I'm jealous!! Another fun creative outlet for you!! You have to keep us updated if you decide to explore it!!
Hey there Corey, so great to get your fun comment! and you are absolutely right, so many wonderful scents. This shop is almost as good as an art/fabric store! I think the key is to have someone with knowledge to help you pick the right one or combination, or maybe, like me, go with the one that just does it for you! I really believe there is much healing power there, even if it's just some calmness or a good nights sleep. Hope you are having a ball with all your projects, I always look forward to seeing more ...
Sleep will come with time...could it be that the new living space has a different light, different dimensions, different feel...? Eventually, with ritual setting in, you should sleep soundly--I hope! Good luck, Susan!
Dawn ... yes, yes and yes! all new and different. I guess I thought from all our many years of constant moving the mind and body would be able to keep adjusting to changes.Could it be(gasp!) an age thing? Thanks so much for your thoughts and for reminding me of the importance of ritual.
I was just gonna say lavender, Susan. Let us know what eventually works! I just heard the other day that you should NOT drink milk just before bed, but I can't remember why. I think they recommended something else, so I'll try to remember to ask Astrid.
About lavender i'll say too.I have a book the title is "Learn to Sleep Well"by professor Chris Idzikowski, Duncan Baird Publishers 2000.It is sooooooo good, maybe it will help you.Great photos as always!Much love to you both!(i have respont to your mail...)
Ginnie, lavender seems to be the right choice and I guess the warm milk before bed is just a myth, never been tempted to try that!Teteel, so I guess at some point that you had trouble sleeping as well? The title of that book says it all, something as natural as sleep we may have to learn!
I would definitely go for lavender! I often make the experience that I sleep worse in higher locations, because that might effect you as well?
Carola ... good point, you may be on to something! I don't remember having any trouble when we lived here for so many years before but the " being more mature thing" could make that difference!
Like everyone else, I was going to say lavender! I keep a vintage teacup beside my bed filled with cinnamon sticks, and every few days I sprinkle a few drops of lavender on it. It really helps me. If you learn about some other scents that work, please let us know!Oh, and the other thing I do when I'm having trouble sleeping is drink some chamomile tea. I buy the whole dried blossoms in bulk. China rain! I love that scent. Hope you have a beautiful week!
Hey Gigi, we are on our way right now up to Salus to find out what we can, it was another night of being awake alot, 4 A.M. is not the time for that! Thanks so much for your thoughts, love the teacup idea.
