The Old Man and the Starfish
by Irv Furman
There was a young man (woman) walking down a deserted beach just before dawn. In the distance he (she) saw a frail old man. As he approached the old man, he (she) saw him picking up stranded starfish and throwing them back into the sea.The young man (woman) gazed in wonder as the old man again and again threw the small starfish from the sand to the water. He (she) asked, "Old man, why do you spend so much energy doing what seems to be a waste of time?"The old man explained that the stranded starfish would die if left in the morning sun. " But there must be thousands of beached and millions of starfish!" exclaimed the young man (woman). "How can you make any difference?"The old man looked down at the small starfish in his hand and as he threw it into the safety of the sea, he said, "I made a difference to this one."

Part 1 - 'Exterior Feng Shui Considerations'
Thurs - March 2019 Dates TBA 6-8 pm 8 hours class time
Originally, Feng Shui was developed to consider geographic land Considerations regarding the placement of dwellings and burial sites for the ancestors. Careful decision making would bring abundance and prosperity to the current occupants and for future generations.Close attention
was paid to the surrounding land formations, water sources,sunlight, and wind patterns. The overall presence of the five elements and the balance of them were essential to achieve harmony and well-being. In addition to the presence of the 5 Elements water, wood, fire, earth, and metal, are the essential 9 life areas of the Feng Shui Bagua that represent our work, life purpose, health, relationships, quality of life, support
and motivation. Outside our dwellings there lies a vast and expansive universe from which we may connect to the Heavenly Chi that is all
around us, represented by the 8 compass directions. No matter how small or how large you can bring Feng Shui inspiration to your yard or garden!
