The first newsletter

HK heartbeat began in 2001 with an email to a few friends:

From: “Kinzie” <>
Sent: Monday, October 22, 2001 3:38 PM
Subject: enews launch

Welcome to my new venture.

HK heartbeat enews is a new weekly event calendar listing holistic activities for self and community.

The publication is born out of a desire to circulate information I receive about what’s on in Hong Kong.

There is a wide range of fun and healthy activities on offer and a growing number of people looking for ways to contribute to our own personal growth as well as the careful development of our planet earth.

Like any community, our strength is in our cooperation.

We are fortunate to live in an international village with a vast array of skills, talents, gifts and viewpoints.

Knowledge becomes increasingly valuable as it is shared.

I manage the publication and aim to keep the material simple in order to reach across languages with a style that is efficient and not intrusive.

The list is for the sole purpose of this email newsletter.

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated.

Feel free to share this content with your community.

I just had to let you know that I am a big fan of your essays. I am crazy busy with a full time job, 3 little boys and a green group in DB but I always have time to stop and read your emails – I have often found them just spell bounding. You are clearly a very gifted writer so just a wee note to let you know how much I enjoy them and how often I find such food for thought in them! Really fresh and interesting and entertaining so thank you! Kate

What a writing gift you have.
Each time I read your pieces they are so inspired.
When is your book going to be published? You need to share your special wisdom with millions more.
Keep up the great work.
Take care, Lynda
