Letter from the Editor: Whimsical Lady

By Leslie Moore

October 2008 Theme: Whimsical Lady

I love Halloween. It’s such a great excuse to dress up in some outlandish outfit and eat a lot of chocolate. When my children were small, I would dress up with them for a night of trick-or-treating. Most of the time I was the only mom parading through the neighborhood in costume, but I never cared. Now both of my children say those nights hold some of their fondest memories from childhood. These days, I usually attend an adult Halloween party, and I still get excited leaving the house in whatever crazy costume I decide to wear. I now know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Diane DeVaughn Stokes talks about her love of costumes in her essay this month, “Who’s Who?,” and she doesn’t even wait for Halloween.

October is also Breast Cancer Awareness month, and I would like to congratulate Ursula Pierce, a breast cancer survivor who is now working to help others with this disease. Ursula, a resident of Surfside Beach, made a beautiful afghan decorated with the breast cancer awareness logo that was raffled off last summer during a golf outing to benefit the Susan Komen Foundation. Ursula is one of many in our community who are helping raise money for breast cancer research. I thank you all.

It’s not what you look at that matters, it’s what you see.
