Spring brings fresh energy, excitement and sometimes stormy waters. Here in the Cygnus family we seem to be in the middle of a perfect storm. We did not want to burden the Cygnus community with our challenges, but it has reached a stage where we are all sure that you will want to know what is happening.

Our beautiful Ann’s health is fragile. The cancer was put on hold but then there was the most extraordinary home disaster. Some leaking sewage created biological spores, aspergillus amongst other harmful spores. The whole family was badly affected. These events may have triggered the minor strokes in Ann that she’s had since January. So while the cancer is largely in regression these complications have taken their toll on Ann’s reserves and she is frail. Frail but in wonderful spirits! There is a lot of love.

In the meantime of course the digital world and Amazon are taking over the book world and Cygnus’ financial turnover has been declining.

So here is a plea from our hearts. In the long term we are dedicated to maintaining and developing the Cygnus community. We are a great family – a book club and a group of souls dedicated to love and nature and the healing of all life. We realise that Cygnus needs to evolve so as to create new services and income streams, and must take true advantage of all the new internet technology. In a few months time we shall begin to share our plans with you and actively ask for your engagement in creating our future.

In the short term you help us immensely by choosing to buy books from us and joining our supporters’ scheme, which as more and more of you join helps us improve ever swifter.

So trusting in all that is good and beautiful we wish you all much love and many blessings.
