This past week I mentioned an article in the Los Angeles Time titled: Why gratitude is so good! by Arlene Dawson (click for full article) Listing 10 ways in which you can foster gratitude and how important it can be in life. Studies show that practicing gratitude can help lower blood pressure, stop smoking and reduce stress.
A quote from Robert A. Emmons, Professor Of Psychology at UC Davis: “Gratitude is good medicine”.
Reading more of his writings I came across a suggestion of how to deal with the current unrest in this world, both near and far. It was suggested to take our attention to the community where you live and make a difference is helping where you are receiving gratitude. A place which gives you pleasure and work towards preserving it for others to receive and appreciate. See more #6 in the article.

While our late summer brake is almost over, I’m still enjoying family and especially my granddaughter in San Francisco. By Sunday I will have returned and look already forward to welcome you back to my classes, starting on Monday, September 18.
For the weekend I recommend to spend a little time in your kitchen and prepare a delicious late summer soup like my partner Rolf did yesterday. All it takes for 4 people is:
2 pound organic Butternut Squash, 1 midsize white onion, 1 tablespoon of “Better Than Bouillon” organic chicken base, 1/2 big Pink Grapefruit, 2 ounces butter, 3 ounces Half&Half, Alfalfa Sprouts and a few cocktail tomatoes, 2 tablespoons olive oil and a full teaspoon mild curry powder. Black pepper if you like.
Peel and take the seeds off the squash, than dice it (in about 1 inch pieces), dice the onion as well. Both together put in a casserole, in which you heated up the butter. Stir and make sure that all is coated a bid with the butter. Parallel bring 1.25 liter water to boil. Add the chicken base to the veggies and pour the hot water into the casserole. Let everything cook until the veggies get soft. Then use a handheld blender to turn it all into a velvety liquid. Add now the curry, the olive oil and the juice of the grapefruit and mix it in with the blender. Let it cool down for about 5 minutes and add the Half&Half. Taste if you need to add salt and pepper. Serve it in a soup bowl or dish and decorate it with an island of sprouts topped by half of a cocktail tomato. The soup tastes for my opinion best and provides amazing flavor, when served warm, not hot.
… Jade is most valued for its metaphysical properties. It is the ultimate “Dream Stone,” revered in ancient cultures, as well as today, to access the spiritual world, gain insight into ritualistic knowledge, encourage creativity, and dream-solve. It is cherished as a protective talisman, assuring long life and a peaceful death, and is considered a powerful healing stone. An amulet of good luck and friendship, Jade signifies wisdom gathered in tranquility, dispelling the negative and encouraging one to see oneself as they really are…
