From the Co-Editors’ Desktops

By Bev Hollander, BSN, MS, HNB-BC and Judith Ewing, M.Ed., M.A., CIH

Bev Hollander

Wow, what a ride! I joined your Board in January of 2007. March 2007 was my first issue of ImagiNews, and I can hardly believe it – December’s issue will be 5 full years! I am feeling very proud of where we started and where we have come. From a single editorship we have evolved to a jointly shared effort. Yes, what a ride!!!

As we mentioned on our list-serve, Judith & I are a bit later than originally intended with this issue’s publication. We regret any inconvenience this delay may have caused you. As a benefit to all of us, the delay has given me the Opportunity to ponder my contribution and, for both of us, the Opportunity to create an even more spectacular issue for you.

Judith Ewing

Between the time spent on editing and the moment we put the issue “to bed,” Judith & I have the Opportunity to communicate regularly by email and telephone. The same optimism and excitement we feel when we decide on the issue’s theme comes full circle as we laugh together and finish the work that we believe so ably and aptly demonstrates that chosen theme. Combine that excitement with the joy of seeing the finished product from Jenn, our Graphics Designer, and we are always amazed at how professional and letters to us confirm we are on the right track.

Judith and I divided the editing process completely this time and, as a result, we are looking forward to reading some of your contributions for the very first time when it returns from Jenn. We hope you find our content educational and rewarding, as this is always our intention.

I am so grateful to Judith for her support and intelligent enrichment of this journal – your journal. And now is your Opportunity to contribute to our greatness with your wise words and stories for the December issue with its theme of Transitions. Judith and I anticipate continued joy in our work together so please give us something to “chew” and send it to us by Nov 10th. Send to: bev@ or

Please remember, your Letters to the Editor are always welcome at any time – same email addresses.

Thank you for all you do!!!!!

Bev & Judith
