“Every moment is a fresh beginning.” – T.S. Eliot.
I love the fall. It always feels like a new year to me. I find myself caught up in the excitement of new creations, new dreams and new realizations.
This issue, I’m surprised and delighted to announce HEN, the newsletter I have been writing for the last 15 years and putting out at every full moon, is finally growing up! I have been considering how to transition HEN from a newsletter into a blog for too many years to count! I wanted the transition to be smooth and to add value for you, dear readers, in the change. With the help from supporters in thinking it through, it has finally happened!
What does this mean for you? The exciting thing is, if you liked HEN the newsletter just the way it was, the good news is you can still receive HEN into your inbox at every full moon as always. Perfect!
And, if you want to read past editions, they are still available on my website as PDFs. Great!
What changes from here on in – is that HEN the “newsletter” – will also be posted onto my website, not as PDFs, but as HEN the blog!
This will do a few things. Firstly, it will allow those who are not on my newsletter list, perhaps finding out about HEN serendipitously through the web or my website, to easily see what new ideas about health, the environment and negotiation I am writing about. Eventually, as the new posts build up, it will also be possible to search through old blog posts by theme.
In the meantime, the biggest addition that making HEN a blog means is – you will now be able to share your thoughts or comment on every article with the HEN community. So, if you want, feel free to click on the comment link at the end of each article, and it will take you to my website, where the blog is stored. There you will be able to offer any new comments, resources or ideas you think might be helpful for others to hear – and read comments from others.
This feature really struck me with the last issue, where I spoke about my journey with an aging parent. I heard from quite a few of you via private email. Yet, some of your comments and resources, could be of value to others as well. So posting comments as easily as clicking on the link below each article really opens up a whole new level of possible connection!
Let me know what you think! I want HEN to be a gift to you every month and to be responsive!
