Passing The Torch

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 ,

            Mike Burkleo
