Just Between Us...


We’re well into 2022 as we post our fifteenth Emerging Voices. We’re pleased to have added a new voice, journalist Manasa Narayanan, as editorial assistant and writer/podcast producer. Manasa’s initial podcast on the theme of Hope and Ageing is here. She’ll continue this series with a podcast each month through June.


Manasa’s creative energies join those of photographer/visual artist Gulce Tulcali and writer and social media director Tess O’Hara. Check out another of Gulce’s brilliant photo essays. In addition to her own work, Gulce designs each posting of Emerging Voices. As always, it’s Tess O’Hara who reaches out via social media in addition to the work she does as a writer and professional editor. The webzine is fortunate to have these three talented women working to make the site happen.


Besides the features above, we have an essay on the tragedy of Grenfell Tower written by Katrina Hicks and an update from Rachel Jacobs on the whereabouts of her Future Machine companion. I continue 'Chronicles of an Elder' with a reflection on my late mother. And see below for a short video posting. I’ll record one of these a month.


Thanks for subscribing. It remains free, and we’d appreciate your encouraging friends to sign up. We want to widen our reader/listener base. Every name added to our list helps us do that.


With warmest wishes for a year of renewed strengths and fulfillments.
