As I considered the kind offer by Fred and Charlotte to follow them in managing Friends Of Jade I realised quickly that it would be a huge challenge for myself and Joan. I am quite sure I do not have the credentials or the life experience of Fred and Charlotte, but as I talked over the idea with respected friends the feedback I received was encouraging. We have all reaped the wonderful benefit of Freds undertaking to revive Friends Of Jade . As a result we can sit at our computers and study all about Jade through the Journal articles or read about current happenings in the world of Jade through articles contributed by those in the Jade world today. In fact, Friends Of Jade dinners at Tucson and Jade Cove have had a great impact in helping to connect and mould the current community of Jade lovers around the world. All of this a result of a man with a plan sitting at the computer!
In closing I would like to Thank Fred and Charlotte for their hard work and the trust they have given me. I would also encourage feedback and dialogue as to the focus and the future of Friends Of Jade.
In the following weeks I will be adding weekly suggestions for articles and posting a few myself.
Until then ,
