FayWintEditorI’m especially inspired this issue by Rosemary’s story on the beautiful island of Montserrat (page 61) and her courageous people who have managed to rebuild after the eruption of the Soufriere Hills volcano in 1997. With such resilient people, the island has literally risen out of the ashes, becoming once again a vibrant, colourful island, a place renewed.

Renewal is such a wonderful state. Whether it is coming out of an awful experience or just simply taking a different turn, it all boils down to how we handle the experience. Sometimes a fear of change can prevent such renewal, but when we make that step, we find it was worth it after all.

It is another Spring Issue of HHG Magazine, and for those of us who are avid gardeners, we know that the different seasons are reflected in our gardens, even if we live in the warm Caribbean. The temperature changes may not be significant, but the plants renew themselves with energetic growth, birds build nests and there is a fresh feeling in the air. We can take a cue from nature.

“As this new season begins, why not pause and take an inventory of your mental/emotional, physical and spiritual health” – I borrow a line from Helen’s article, “Emotional Health and You” – see page 85. In this perceptive article she writes about the benefits of practising gratitude, de-stressing constantly and being true to oneself. There really is no better way to live our lives.

I hope you enjoy all the features in this issue—you know they were carefully put together with you in mind. Happy renewal in whatever way it suits you best!
