What I'm Doing Now

 

I'm living in an apartment overlooking the Maribyrnong River in Footscray. Most mornings I take a walk along the river, and through a lovely wetland of swans and bunnies, and young workers in yoga pants. This year I turn 54.

I don't have a house of my own at the moment, so that might be why I have torrents of energy for decluttering and harmonizing the homes of others. This is my main work this year, with a special focus on clients with big dreams and 'ADHD'. I feel like a fairy, when I turn up, know exactly what to do with other people's chaos. It's such a victory over my past. 

 


My Outline Plan for 2024


I'm available for a handful of month-long declutter and home harmonize projects. These are for people who are ready to go 'all the way'. Mainly Melbourne, Sydney, Byron Bay and Kamakura.  I'm open to invitations to co-host creative dinner parties, and model for creative pro photographers, in the last days of my youthful bloom.

 

March 2024
For three Sundays in a row, I'm holding Zen your Space design webinars. They are hands-on and 'Giftivist'.

Early April 2024

Spain, Morocco. I'd love to co-host a creative people's dinner party while I'm there: please introduce me to any wonderful connector people you know. 

Late April - Late May 2024

Melbourne, then Kamakura -  Living with my Permaculture Sister Remi, doing hands-on home harmonizing consults, and workshops at The General Store

I am entrusted with a big, old, beautiful house in a great location. I restart my Zen Permaculture Fairyland community and get a cat. This is my dream. 

 

 

My Reading Life

 

These 3 books are top of my mind, in my conversations, and lighting my path ahead: 

No Bad Parts by Richard Schwartz 

The Body Keeps the Score, Bessel van der Kolk

Scattered: How Attention Deficit Disorder Originates and What You Can Do About It, by Garbor Mate 
I treat myself to a couple of library books a week. 'Kafka on the Shore' is this week's escape from reality.

 

My Music Life


I want to escape Spotify, but not yet. I need to make the most of it first, as music is one of the poorest areas of my life right now. 

Like life, if you refuse everything but the things you love, that's what you'll be given.

So I'm cleaning up my favourites lists, and strategizing for a way to unsubscribe and be cyber-independent by 2026. I'd like to focus on doing this with friends, at a weekend getaway. Send your ideas.

 

 

My Photo Life

 

I 'favourite' the best photos of each month, and delete the rest as I go. On the last day of the month, I get a reminder to upload favourites to Google Photos, where AI finds anything I want, like magic. In preparation for the Zombie apocalypse, my most important photos are in a Hard Drive in iPhoto, in miraculously well-organized folders. I can find any image I want with my own brain! I quietly set this up during my 'Year of the Butler' in 2020. It's another victory over my disorganized past. Yet, I'd love a getaway weekend with like-minded friends, to keep making process improvements. Do send your good ideas.
