Build Nature Up

Spring Rose Cottage Garden Amor Milagre Garden renovation

How can one separate time when it is all at once?  My memory is an ancient one, and I love to get lost in my earliest, most natural memories.  I close my eyes and see green, sparkling green.  My art translates a sliver of these images.  My book characters also dwell here, some in mossy hillside homes, cosy in the Earth, and covered in wildflowers.  Antonia’s Bakery is a such a children’s book.  My Leona novels are from another series that bridges old and new days.  An enchanting new book, featuring more illustrations of natural earthen homes, is coming soon!  In my stories, many ideas for preserving and appreciating nature are shared.

 

Below is a video about bushcraft and loving nature that feels grounding for the viewer.  I came across it this week while doing some research for our woods and cottage garden.  These building techniques remind me of my family now, which is my ancient soul family.  We lived with the Earth and we try every day to get back to that peace.  Remember when building your homes, it is important to use the most natural, non-toxic, and sustainable materials and systems.  This is not only healthy for you now, but for all of the universe in all time periods.  Prevent pollution and heal the Earth.  Grow goodness!  Love, Amor Milagre

Here is another video by a talented woman who made a similar house. I’m not into the lights, but her techniques are wonderful to learn!

Books that Travel Beautifully

Amor Milagre Books that Travel Beautifully
Leona’s Homecoming:  The Love Letter Diaries, The First Year of Seasonal Festivals, 4 Novels Vol. I by Amor Milagre

 

In the pocket of a trusty travel bag fits a delicious novel and a sweet children’s book to savour on a train or plane, in a lamplit inn with the summer breeze kissing your robed cheeks, or swaying on a hammock in your back garden.  ‘Il dolce far niente’ means the sweetness of doing nothing in Italian.  Letting yourself find what you love nourishes and rejuvenates the soul.  My books are for all ages and encourage authentic, kind, peaceful practices and ideas to try.  I love rereading them with our family as I hope you do, too.

In this often chaotic world, I write ways to live beautifully and naturally.  My characters help instead of harm.  They are funny, sweet, thoughtful, and very real.  I send love to anyone who must travel due to emergencies in their homeland.  As I know too well, this kind of travel is not at all relaxing as a vacation would be.  People leave to save their lives.  They are trying to escape danger.  All they had built is left behind, and they have to start over, usually with nothing.  This is heartbreaking and incredibly dangerous.  Precautions and safe help are urgently needed during times of war, natural disasters, and abuse.  Every country must protect the rights of women and children.  Re-abolish slavery for good.  Replace the history of negativity with positive growth that benefits everyone.  New beginnings are a chance to redesign for a better life.  Although we all may miss precious things that were lost due to trauma, we can heal and rebuild a healthy future to keep all of the babies of the world safe.  Peace is possible if we all choose it.

I include tragic misfortunes and terrible struggles in my books, but I paint up characters who help those in need of a positive solution to solve troubles that seem out of their control.  There are too many large and small scale problems on every street and hill in the world.  I write peaceful ideas in the hope that positivity will spread down those streets and over those hills to reach anyone who needs help the most.  Any little bit of help can make the most important difference for one or many.  I wish you a peaceful summer, and I urge everyone to do something that helps someone in the coming months. *Ask how you may help, and then listen.  Work with people to solve and prevent problems.  Ask if you did help, and listen again.  Repeat forever.

I am working on a way for a percentage of each sale to be donated to an organization that directly aids those in need of help while searching for a safe, new home.  Being forced to live a nomadic, uncertain life is cruel, dangerous, and terrifying.  We all need a steady, safe home.  We all can work together to help everyone have this basic need.  Our world must get out of this constant survival mode and change into a deep, lasting time of healing.  Equality and safety is needed worldwide.

In my gift shop, I also feature artwork and photography inspired by my travels.  Nature adores us always…trailing all the way from a rose wall in Tuscany back home to a sweet rose blooming in our New England cottage garden.  Help, don’t harm.  Preserve nature.  Enjoy your unique senses of nature.

 

Shop:  A Gentle Life Collection

Books Sizes/Types:  Digital Audio, Hardback Pocket, Digest, Square, (Paperbacks are Coming Soon)

 

My books are cosy to read, or listen to, when at home, on a work break or weekend, and while travelling.  Many of my stories are set in New England, such as my Sage Rose Sorrel children’s books, but here are some others that you might love to tag along with as my characters explore new favourite places.

Amaranthe tells of living in NYC and France.  Leona has lived in two homes in Italy:  one by the mountains and one by the sea.  Ellary Eden grows a helpful, enchanting garden in the Witching World!  I have just finished three fresh novels for you to explore soon.  There is one especially delicious new book that is set in Belgium!  Every time you explore a new place, you learn so much for your life ahead.

Happy, safe travels to you!  Love, Amor Milagre

Quiet the World

Amor Milagre Cottage Garden End Pollution and Violence

Lay down your weapons and melt them to make bridges

Prevent your threats…..listen

No more pollution

Let seeds wander and grow

Respect women and children

Equality and safety for all

Kind empathic leaders are in and the rest are done

Redesign it all to be healing and proactive

Be honest with therapists and journals before you reenter the world, now with positive habits

Unplug the machines and grow organic edible plants

Plant perennials for pollinators in place of lawns

Quiet the world and listen

Listen to bees humming, birds nesting, babies sleeping, your own energy pulsing, and peace sighing

 

Peace is Possible…so easily possible

Love, Amor Milagre
