eo ambulatum atque omne in fumum et cinerem vertitur.


Explanation:
Lit., 'I go for a walk and everything is turned into smoke and ashes'. 'Omne, etc.' is the corresponding Latin idiom (from Horace) which means 'to go up in smoke'.

Peer comments on this answer (and responses from the answerer)
agree  Joseph Brazauskas: But 'curae meae' must be subject nominative. (Sorry to stress grammar, but I consider that words, however apt, are only part of linguistic communication; grasmmar is equally necessary). Please correct me if I'm mistaken..
