Letter from the Editor: The Good Life

By Leslie Moore

Letter from the Editor

I stopped watching the news on a regular basis years ago, and it has made my life immeasurably better. I no longer start my morning with sound bites of tragedy and pain; instead, I ease into the day quietly with a solo run on the beach and mediation. Still, it’s impossible to miss the big things like natural disasters and government shutdowns. Photos on my Facebook feed draw me in – and sometimes I do click through and get the rest of a story highlighting a family that lost everything or the miraculous recovery of a beloved pet from a pile of rubble. Stories like these help me affirm what we all already know – the most important things that make up a good life are not things at all. The people and pets that we love and that love us back are, in the end all that really matter. The definition of a good life never means more things; it always means more friendship, more peace, more kindness and, most importantly, more love. I wish you all an abundance of these during this holiday season.

My “Southern Snaps” interview this month is with Gloria Gaynor – yes, the Gloria Gaynor. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. I’ve always been a fan, but now I really understand why so many people love her. You’ll also find a couple of new writers, some great ways to help your children give back and much more in this “Good Life” issue. Please let us know what you think!

Happy Holidays!

Blessed is the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love.
