Yesterday we received a letter from Dr. Masaru Emoto, who many of you will recognize as the scientist from Japan who has done research and publications about the characteristics of water. Among other things, his research reveals that water physically responds to emotions.
Right now, most of us have the predominantly angry emotion when we consider what is happening in the Gulf. And while certainly we are justified in that emotion, we may be of greater assistance to our planet and its life forms, if we sincerely, powerfully and humbly pray the prayer that Dr. Emoto himself has proposed.
“I send the energy of love and gratitude to the water and all the living creatures in the Gulf of Mexico and its surroundings. To the whales, dolphins, pelicans, fish, shellfish, plankton, coral, algae, and all living creatures . . . I am sorry. Please forgive us. Thank you. I love you. “
We are passing this request to people who we believe might be willing to participate in this prayer, to set an intention of love and healing that is so large, so overwhelming that we can perform a miracle in the Gulf of Mexico.
We are not powerless. We are powerful. Our united energy, speaking this prayer daily … multiple times daily … can literally shift the balance of destruction that is happening. We don’t have to know how, we just have to recognize that the power of love is greater than any power active in the Universe today.
Please join us in often repeating this healing prayer of Dr. Emoto’s. And feel free to copy and send it around the planet. Let’s take charge, and do our own clean up!
It is with great sorrow that we heard the news that our good friend, colleague and extraordinary physician, Fred Kolhouse, passed last week.
Over the past 20 years, Dr. Kolhouse has selflessly served the oncology communities of rural Colorado making monthly trips to Montrose, Colorado Springs, Longmont, Vail, Aspen, and Pueblo, as well as Glenwood Springs. During these trips he brought world-class oncology and hematology care to our fellow citizens. But more than that, he brought character, class and his always witty humor.
I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Kolhouse for many years. Numerous times, his colleagues from around the world would refer their most complex patients to him – knowing full well that Dr. Kolhouse would figure out what was wrong, fix it, and live by his motto – “nothing is too good for Dr. Kolhouse’s patients”!
What a gift – to learn from such an incredible teacher. This fine man will be greatly missed.

I have to say my “favorite” part of Strawberry Days was the knock on my door at 5:45 a.m. Saturday morning. A police officer told us that we needed to move our cars or they would be towed since our block was part of the staging area for the parade. The officer was polite, and I didn’t envy his job.
Advance notice is an awesome thing. There were notices posted on Colorado Avenue but nothing on Pitkin. I hope next year the city has a little more consideration; just keep us in mind.
