First National Conference
27-29 August 2010
- Greetings from GS Colleagues around the World ...
of us who are "very old" will remember the ceremony of "Reading
the Telegrams" from friends and family at weddings etc. Telegrams
were transmitted and received by hand in morse code by Post Office
staff, then carried by the staff on bicycle to the recipient. They
were costed by count of words, and reserved for matters of great moment.
Jim and Rita (Doyens of the Armagh Community)
Thank you for thinking
of us in your conference taking place August 28-29.
We have reached a time
in our lives when we can only do those things we are absolutely
committed to, and have had to rein ourselves in. Sp we are afraid
we will not be able to take part.
Trust you yourselves
are flying well.
All the best,
Jim and Rita.

Thanks for your interest
and information on what you're doing, particularly with respect
to the First AGS National Conference! Give our greetings and best
wishes to Laurie and David.
I have finished writing
the biography of Korzybski that I've been working on for the last
six years (since Bob Pula died). We are now editing. Still a fair
amount of work to do but we hope to have the book out within the
next year. I'll let you know more as we get closer to publication.
We plan to offer discounts and guess that your group would be
Robert, do you have
a Skype account? If you do, look me up and give me a call. There
is only one Bruce Kodish in Pasadena California as far as I know.
Hi Robert, I have
just received the "First International Conference Brochure". Congratulations
to you, Larry and the rest of the gang for promoting this conference.
I would have loved to be there. A well put together brochure.
Who was/were the designers? I see you have included the piece
that for over 20 years I have been suggesting we use ... I wish
you all great success with this conference.
Please feel free to
use any of the articles at my website as handouts or as references.
My latest article "Creating a Self --A General Semantics Way"
could be published in ETC: by the time of the conference.
You might also consider
mentioning the coming Alfred Korzybski biography (now in the finishing
stages) by Bruce Kodish. He has sent me advance copies of chapters:
I found them easy reading and full of important information on
the emergence of general semantics. I consider this bio. when
available, as a must read for any serious student-practitioner
and especially 'teacher' of the system.
Say "Hi" to Jeanne
and the gang for me.
From Steve Stockdale
Thanks for the nice
email - I'm glad you appreciate the artwork. It's one of the aspects
I believe has been significantly overlooked throughout the years
in terms of helping people learn and apply the GS formulations
by helping them visualize the metaphors.
your forthcoming First National Conference of the Australian Society.
Best regards to you,
David, Laurie, and everyone in Australia.
Dear Robert and all
my australian colleagues on GS: I have received the news about
the First National Conference from your Society. My most sincere
congratulations for organizing it. I am sure it will be a big
succes. Please give my warmest regards to Laurie.
All the best, Kind
Yours was a voice
from the past!
Thanks for the contact. I was interested to hear that Laurie is
still going strong. He is quite a determined soul!
I will be interested
to see the brochure for the conference in August, but I doubt
if I will be able to make it at that time.
Amanda (my wife) and
I have retired to the east coast of Tasmania. We live in quiet
seclusion there with Amanda writing her books and I doing some
environmental work. We are also in Hobart at times so there is
a chance we could meet up.
Cheers for now,
Hi David, Thanks for
the very exciting news. We have a new brochure that is at the
printer now. As soon as it is done I will get it to you.
