Nose, Nose, Nose!

How much does a painting hanging crooked by a millimetre annoy you? If your nose is very prominent and comes off quite a bit from the face, you might have agreed very much with this sentence. You have seem to have very heightened sense of awareness, very sensitive to dirt and even other’s emotions. If someone is angry and sits next to you, you’ll … Read More Nose, Nose, Nose!

For Gratitude is a Moving Thing

Hello! I’m back from Wales, apologies for no posting this week. Coming back I’m grateful for the eleven days (or thirteen???) I had and so, because my brain can’t help it, I started to think about what Chinese Medicine says about gratitude. Often when we hear “grateful” it’s accompanied by “should” – “You should be grateful” – so any image of gratefulness we have … Read More For Gratitude is a Moving Thing

Pineapples!!

I’ve noticed that a very particular person loves pineapples 🍍 It’s not the taste of them they like but the shape. They’ll go crazy over pineapple prints, pineapple trinket boxes, pineapple statues…. This person is usually someone who has a wicked sense of humour, is quick to joke, tease and laugh. They’re easily excited and enthusiastic about everything, and will often use superlatives to … Read More Pineapples!!

Influence of the Ancestors

I’m writing to you from Wales today. Yesterday I mentioned a Roman road that went up to the fort, well here is the fort and the view from it. When I first walked up here in my university days I actually walked past it – it’s nothing more than a suspiciously high, flat and large piece of earth.

What does Queen hair look like? 2/3

Chinese medicine is all about observing the patterns in nature and extrapolating it to behaviors, personalities, the flavours in food, and even hairstyles. The pattern in nature behind both the Queen and Princess or (Prince and King if you are male) is late autumn. This is a time where we are taking stock, reviewing the year just gone and the year ahead, and also … Read More What does Queen hair look like? 2/3

Queen Hair: 1/3

Since the last post I’ve been thinking about how to write this post on “Queen” hair as there are actually two different expressions of this personality, particularly when it comes to wearing and styling hair. So this will be the first out of three posts. This is because there is a yin (inward) expression and yang (outward) expression of this personality type. A very … Read More Queen Hair: 1/3
