In 2013, The Touchstone Center began sending out regular updates about work being done by Richard Lewis and collaborators in the cross-over space of nature, the imagination, and childhood.  Not only do these newsletters include updates as to the work of The Touchstone Center, they also offer spaces for further exploration, with readings, art, and pieces of the Touchstone Center’s archives.  You can read all of them below (PDF).
