Complaining about the neighbour's yard

Complaining about the neighbour’s yard

I had a great conversation recently with a distraught homeowner complaining about their neighbour’s yard. They were desperately seeking some advice as to how to handle a next-door neighbour with an unkempt yard because they were certain that the home was hurting their property value.

Quest for Sacred Space lures us all

Quest for Sacred Space lures us all

Each of us has within us images of natural or man- made space which lingers in our consciousness held by feelings of respect, admiration and awe.  It might be the first view of a mountain, the vastness of the ocean, the potent power of a glacier or the dew on a spider web early on […]
