I have an increasing number of pumpkins in my garden - more than I or my guests shall be able to eat. So this evening...


- Cut the pumpkin into crescents - two per person, or three if narrow
- In a mixing bowl put olive oil, a raw egg, a generous amount of herbe de province, salt and pepper to taste and whip with a fork.
- Dip the crescents in the mixture and put them into a baking tray. Any of the mixture that is left over spoon over the pumpkin.
- Put into a pre-heated oven at 180-200C and cook for 25 minutes

- Chop an onion and two dried figs, put in a wok with a little olive oil and fry stirring frequently. Add a handful of sultanas and grate in some ginger
- When the basic mix has fried for five minutes or so, add several finely chopped tomatoes and tomato puree, plus rosemary and plenty of basil. Cook for at least ten minutes stirring from time to time. You might have to add a small amount of water to prevent it burning on the bottom.

- Take the pumpkin crescents out of the oven and put into a serving tray. Scrape out any of the egg mix stuck to the cooking tray and scatter on the pumpkin. Pour the wok mixture over the top. Serve hot.

Nonetheless I continue to have persistent, continuous head pain that varies in intensity and I become exhausted by the least effort so that I am functioning like an invalid incapable of doing very much. There is always a possibility that the whole syndrome is a…

Grace.

Posted by Dayamay Dunsby on June 2, 2019 at 1:02 4 Comments

“Do we know what it means to be struck by grace? It does not mean that we suddenly believe that God exists, or that Jesus is the saviour, or that the Bible contains the truth. Grace strikes us when we are in great pain and restlessness. It strikes us when we walk through the dark Valley of a meaningless and empty life. It strikes us when we feel that our separation is deeper than usual, because we have violated another life, a life which we loved, or from which we were estranged. It strikes us… Continue

This is a short video of a Buddhist monk and his family. 

It raised questions on parenting and Buddhism - does detachment (or perhaps quietism), as practiced here, lead to demotivation and disengagement with the world around one?

His children find the detachment practised by the monk disquieting. They appreciate the irony of detachment, which is supposed to…

I have recently been made aware of a practice known as Ho’ponopono. Ho’ponopono is an ancient Hawaiian healing practice, based on universal forgiveness, that was rediscovered and popularised in the 80s. A man called Joe Vitale(Hawaiian I think)  became enchanted by the practice after his daughter was healed from an…
