Name Change!

When I married Wayne, I had decided to keep my last name and remain Averyl Hill only because I’ve been publishing as Averyl Hill and it would be a lengthy bureaucratic endeavor to change my name over in every single account and legal document online and off. However, it’s a snap to change my blog name which I have decided to do! Serene New England has been renamed to Simple Living New England!

  1. As I have never viewed “serene” and “simple” to be opposites, it’s fine with me. 🙂 Apart from that: now that you have got married…maybe you’ve heard of German poet and writer Hermann Hesse – I understand some of his prose work (“Sterppenwolf”) was quite popular in the US during the 1960ies as well, as part of Californian “pop culture” of the day. Over here his poem “Stufen” (Steps) is often quoted when a new step forward in life has been taken. And the best known line runs: “Und jedem Anfang wohnt ein Zauber inne, der uns beschützt und der uns hilft, zu leben.” (Magic dwells in each beginning. Magic that shields us and helps us live.)

    1. Hi Uli! Simplicity in lifestyle has definitely been a part of my feeling serene. 🙂 I’ve read Siddhartha a couple of times, once in my twenties then again in my forties, but not Steppenwolf. That’s a beautiful line, thank you for sharing it!
