“Vanderbilt Door” by Katheryn Laible
This e-publication began as a way to stay connected with a rich network built over decades of deep service to organizations at the fusion point of interests. In 2018, we committed to it as something worthy of development: A resource to serve and celebrate folks who care for art, science and the common good on Long Island and beyond. It is driven by love, endeavors toward truth, and offers my best to appreciate it.
The Synchronicity Network News features folks who care for our communities — socially, economically, and environmentally — as well as those who help us to be better people, leaders and stewards. There is consideration of ethics and critical thinking. Art, culture, philosophy and science is here…body, mind, and soul…natural beauty, thoughtfully tended gardens… at least 400 different people and entities have been featured already in our samplings of items that I hope will encourage you to open your eyes to so much more.
You can read the philosophy driving Synchronicity here. the dededication page here, and the disclaimer here. Basically, it’s positive reinforcement aimed at folks who endeavor to give this world their best. I appreciate your feedback and support, and thank you for sharing all the good that you may do.
It matters. Deeply.
I hope you find this endeavor enriching. Please enjoy.
