In August, Rising Dragon Feng Shui was invited to consult in Aberdeen. While we were there we were also able to take a look around the “Granite City”, the grey jewel of Scotland and capital of the UK’s North Sea Oil industry. Here are some of our memoirs:
On the taxi ride into town from the airport, the taxi driver had joked that normally in Aberdeen kids are only aware of the sun through school encyclopedias! It must’ve been their first summer in years when I arrived and the weather was soothingly warm and fresh.
Union Street runs through Aberdeen’s city centre which streches in a line for about a mile.
Some of the architecture is the stuff of fairy tales and it’s built from huge granite bricks dug locally. Add a few performers and it could’ve been Disneyland!
The town may seem dull and grey, particularly when it rains, but the people are shining and positive.
I wandered into one of the cities many churches to ask God to give me the power and the courage to change people’s lives positively. That night I saw Jim Carey in Bruce Almighty, where God challenges him to do a better job. If I was God the first thing I’d do is put an end to is bad Feng Shui housing developments!
As a souvenir I bought this card at the Church; in Feng Shui knowing what we can change and doing it is paramount.
