Letter from the Editor: The Joy of Friendship

By Leslie Moore

Janey Womeldorf and Leslie Moore

Each month, writers from all over the country, and even the world, share their lives with Sasee readers through their writing –and reading these well crafted essays is fun, a lot like sitting down for a visit with a good friend. Many of these talented women (and a few men) have been submitting their work to us for years, and our frequent emails have deepened into personal relationships – we know what’s going on in each other’s lives and have shared good times and bad through long, rambling letters that are fun and rewarding to write and receive. I treasure these relationships and many times have thought about how wonderful it would be to travel and meet each one in person. Several years ago, I was able to meet Susan DeBow, a Sasee favorite since the beginning, and in mid-July I had the opportunity to spend a fun few hours with Janey Womeldorf, a name that you may recognize from her long term presence in Sasee. While she was vacationing in Charleston, Janey graciously took time from her holiday to meet me in Georgetown for lunch. And it was every bit as much fun as I had envisioned – we had an instant connection and it felt like we had been friends all of our lives. There was so much to talk about that lunch ended up being three hours long! Now that our virtual friendship has become an “in-person” one, I can’t wait until our next meeting.

Enjoy our friendship issue!

I cannot even imagine where I would be today were it not for that handful of friends who have given me a heart full of joy. Let's face it, friends make life a lot more fun.
