IT DOESN'T MATTER WHOM YOU LIVE WITH OR WHERE YOU MOVE FROM OR TO, YOU ALWAYS TAKE YOURSELF WITH YOU. IF YOU DON'T KNOW WHO YOU ARE, OR IF YOU'VE FORGOTTEN OR MISPLACED HER, THEN YOU'LL ALWAYS FEEL AS IF YOU DON'T BELONG. ANYWHERE.
― MOVING ON
"We do not know how to move on," Sarah Ban Breathnach observes. "We have learned to let go, but not move on."
Did you know that the name of the greatest lover of all time, Casanova means "new house"? More often than we realize true love is concealed in wood and stone instead of flesh and bone. If you're interested in perusing these pages, you're a kindred spirit who suspects, or at least hopes, that our shared passion--the pursuit of domestic bliss--is a truth much deeper than discovering the perfect paint chip or fabric swatch. (Although finding both has been known to make me gasp with delight!) I believe with all my heart that the pursuit of domestic bliss is a spiritual path, a sacred endeavor, and more the spare bedroom covered to ceiling with clutter, than the road less traveled. However, I've got to be honest with you before we begin. The truth that a woman's home is the most accurate barometer of her emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual well-being is as unsettling at times as it is reassuring. Nonetheless, the home is the surest diagnostic laboratory I've seen for discovering the deepest longings of the feminine soul and understanding how much time, creative energy emotion and nurturing She needs to be restored. Part meditation, how-to-manual and memoir, Moving On is for anyone who has ever wanted to revamp her life and the space where she lives it.
