A Lalique Femme de Mer fountain now graces my bedroom window.

This  beautiful cast glass masque was just floating
around in our back garden.  I asked English husband,
“could you make me a water feature outside our rather
dark and dreary second bedroom window?"

and of course before I knew it, he was
busily at work doing just that.

and a miracle occured.

Lovliness...tranquilty...gently trinkling water.
The sound is all throughout the house.

Now I sit and meditate and stare at her pretty face.
The tv doesn’t even go on.  
Talk about a transformation.

The Feng Shui has changed.
The bad mojo banished.
The yin and the yang are in harmony.

The whole room  is now a retreat of serenity.

Hi there, yes I'm still floating around :)

I just love the face and the idea to make it a fountain, the sound of water is just so soothing along with her serene face.

I was so very sorry to hear of the passing of your darling Mama. My very sincere sympathy to you.

Nothing soothes me
like the sound of water,
so I can imagine what
joy it brings you, too.
I'm just learning to
meditate and have been
shopping for one of those
alarm clocks that plays
nature sounds so that I
can have rain or ocean
sounds : ) Not the same
as your Lalique lovely, but
I'll take it!

Sometimes it just takes something as simple as falling water to make the world a more serene place. How lovely to now have that sound in your room.
