Connecting with Affiliates is one of the joys of being an editor of the NSFA. An Affiliate called me recently, emphatically saying, “We’ve got to keep that spirit of Buen Vivir in our Affiliate community. How can we do that?” We offer the NSFA as one way for Affiliates to connect and share living in harmony. We hope that articles in this issue will inspire your and your chapter’s growth in harmony.

We recognize that we are living in changing times. Octavia Butler, an award-winning Black, science-fiction author writes, “All that you touch You Change. All that you touch Changes you. The only lasting truth is Change.”  We need to see and question the change that engulfs us. Bill Murphy and the Easy Meeting question, “Where are you going?” May we ask the questions to help guide the change.

Share your stories of growth and change in the NSFA (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).
