Moonlady Moves On: Amy’s goodbye letter

Moonlady Moves On: Amy’s goodbye letter

Moonlady Moves On

Last Day for Moonlady Digest is December 20, 2013

Contribute to the “help Moonlady retire with a smaller mountain of debt” fund

 

You know our philosophical soundbites. “Life begins at the edge of your comfort zone.” Well, I certainly have explored that one for the past 15 months! Running the Moonlady News digest and Moonlady.com requires deep, nerdy computer technology that is soooo not my comfort zone.

“You can do anything you put your mind to” is another one. And I believed that, that I could master ad management and bookkeeping that comes with such a site, and the promotions as well, even though my skills were that of a lifelong journalist.

Truth be known, I’d Peter Principled myself into a role that, let’s just say, was not my bliss.

After a much thought, much counseling, and many meditations on my part, Moonlady News will cease operations on Fri. Dec. 20, Amy_127_lotuson the first of the three-day Winter Solstice window.

Moonlady Retires!

With the completion of Moonlady News as we know it, Moonlady retires as well. I’ve been an activist since I was 12. Over 45 years, 20 of it with the Moonlady community, working every day for a better world.

My passion, my core identity, is being a writer and I must devote myself to that. I’m not getting younger and there are a few major creative projects baying at the gate to be completed. That’s kind of scary, having no more excuses, but exciting.

I am grateful for you all. Someday I’ll tell the full story, of how knowing you were out there, and being of service to you, kept me going through the worst time of my life.

Empowering You, Continuing the Network

Moonlady News did show, much as Winter SolstiCelebration did, that there is a large consciousness community in North Texas that holds values like oneness, acceptance and peace. Long may it flourish!

Over the remaining days of Moonlady News, I’ll share with you my sources for the info and events you see in Moonlady News. And we’ll look back at the ways it has changed lives and even the culture of North Texas.

Thanks to Moonlady
