Big Lift Ferry Poem F182

To me, feng shui is –
Far more about intention –
Than superstition

Notes to this poem…

Feng shui is often described as involving supernatural forces, like it’s a superstition or belief. However, the best thing about feng shui, as far as I’m concerned, is its practicality. It’s very effective interior decorating, for one thing! But on the superstition side of its principles, to do certain things for certain reasons, instead of thinking of it as doing it to bring luck or whatever, think of it as doing it to signify your intentions. Those intentions could be to yourself, or to others who might know or see it. That intention is then a huge psychological commitment, as far as I’m concerned, and that’s the real value of feng shui to me.

The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
