It’s been a while. The last articles posted on the blog were dated Summer 2021. In fact, I reviewed the last article for Towards Stewardship of Earth & Home so that I could have some idea of where my head was. If there is any topic that I have shifted and expanded on, it is that of stewardship. In fact, this section that addresses our relationship with the Planet has changed to, Towards Conscious Relationship – Earth & Home and in this edition’s essay I explain the reasons for the change. 

The section Art, Articles and Book Reviews has been eliminated. When relevant or necessary, any information that would have been in this section will be integrated into the remaining existing sections. I reason that the sections Ascension, Resurrections, Shifts & Transformation and Towards Conscious Relationship can accommodate art and reviews of articles and books. Finally, there is The Call, Rap and RealTalk – about the belief in working and earning a living; this section remains as is.

In respect to social media, I have been posting a Monday message on the New Earth Advocate- Facebook page, here on the blog and on Twitter. The Monday messages for the blog will draw to a close after the August 29th message. Please note that I’ll take frequent, routine breaks from social media, frequent being a month off, every 2 months or so. I’m finding that I get bogged down by social media despite its offerings of some excellent information. 

Finally, this is the 10th anniversary of the blog. I started it back in 2012, in September, I believe. It started out as a monthly essay, two or three paragraphs at the most, about working, jobs and the workplace. I have added and eliminated other sections over the years, and undoubtedly, those changes will continue to occur as long as I AM expanding and shifting. Stepping away from writing and creating the blog over the past year has broadened my perspective, one which I am looking forward to sharing.

Hope that you will enjoy, be informed and inspired by this “comeback” edition. I enjoyed creating it. Please leave a comment if you feel so inclined.
