Tips for Healthy Blood & Good Circulation

ChatterRecipe of the Month February 2011

Sole Meuniere

I had a hard time deciding on a recipe for this month but in the end I decided to go with something that is not only simple and seasonal, but also something that reminds me of my Aquarius father, who dearly loved his food and wine and would have loved this recipe!

ChatterQuote February 2011

Langston Hughes, Writer 1902 – 1967

In keeping with our theme – this month’s quote comes from surprise, surprise, an Aquarius and writer Langston Hughes, born of African-American and Native American descent, and was best known for his work during the Harlem Renaissance, writing about Harlem when it was considered to be “in vogue.” And like most Aquarians, he was concerned with “freedom.” Give an Aquarius their freedom and they can produce magic. Attempt to cage them in, and you’re in trouble, they’ll be gone in a flash and might not come back!

“An artist must be free to choose what he does, certainly, but he must also never be afraid to do what he might choose.”

Langston Hughes

Continuing on with this month’s theme of individuality, it won’t come as a surprise that this month’s photographers are showing portraits of “unique” individuals!

David Partner

Starting us out this month is photographer and long-time friend, David Partner. We have known each other for a great many years that began as far back as our teens, but the reason I’m showing this particular portrait this month is because I thought it perfectly represented the idea of “unique individuals.”
