The Muse cruises the world of myths. A kernel of truth is the soul of every story, so she documents the only sure reality – that of change – the rest is imagination.

FREEDOM is the greatest wealth on Earth, spend it wisely

Transcending extremities through balance and simplicity

Inspiration ~ the Muses

Indulge

Embrace pleasure in life: Be aware of biodiversity, shed guilt by choosing responsibly made food, savor terroir in wine and genuine chocolate ~ Relish the Earth sustainably

Rejuvenate

Complement your wellbeing with healthy food, herbs, tea, spa and by slowing down: Open all senses to life and you will find youth in every moment ~ Harmony is graceful

Travel

Engage with each destination, its people and their lifestyle. Seek your soul places. Wander for authentic inspiration and learning ~ Traveling with awareness is life’s greatest university

Learn

Enrich yourself through art, crafts, philosophy, intellectual pursuits, and flow creatively through daily necessities like cooking or thinking ~ Luxury is doing what feels great in the moment
