Not One NNH Email Sent for over 6 months
Patricia from Stockholm wrote to me using a "reply" on my old last email broadcast letter of Sep 6th 2011.
Boy I loved seeing my old "last letter". That was from an email broadcast service (Ratepoint) that I had been using during the 2009 webcasts. Thereafter an automatic emailer on Drupal (our website) sent out by-weekly updates on the new content to our members, which is a different list and now over 1000. Then that broke last summer when it started sending out duplicates and even 10-15 emails to each person with every send out period. I installed another module but never got it going, so we have had way over 100 new videos without any email updates calling members back in. That is what I meant in that old letter, when I said I confused NNH with a business that I should be promoting it.
Should I? Why? Why don't you do it? Well, here is the letter:
(Here is some more of the letter.)
During those times I was probably building a model of a "dialogue for creativity". How could some shared discovery trigger a new mind-set that would immediately settle in a vast number of people? And what would manifest out of that new obviousness?
I suppose that I still believe in this, or dream that it could be possible. The regular webcasts are gone, even though technically it is not so difficult. The regularity of it seems too much all consuming for one person. I prefer a few pauses in life. So let this be our last email and a thanks,
I often ask myself, "what good is a teaching, if so few people are transformed by it?" Or, why are we at it for decades if it is really effective? Perhaps it is just another mind game that is more subtile, because it claims to be the game to end all games.
In 2010 and 11 I had been searching new venues, thinking that people with another background would elicit another speaking, and maybe it would come out more simple and more broad based. I don't claim that I could create a new language, but it would unfold by itself in the doing of it.
NeverNotHere.com is still on-line and open for participation. Sometimes I run a bunch of talks and events, and sometimes I slow down. It doesn't need any particular rhythm.
It would be nice if you would take over (your part of it) and express your dream through it. Anything you want or need to make that come true for you is yours. Let's just start with an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
And thanks for being in my life.
