Letter from the Editor: Everyday Joy

Along the coast, one of the first signs that fall is coming is the appearance of delicate and beautiful yellow butterflies. Called cloudless sulphur butterflies, large groups flutter around my summer-worn impatiens and lantanas, and I feel the first bittersweet twinge of autumn’s approach. As a lover of all things summer, I have to ease into the idea that my favorite season is nearing its end. I reluctantly let go of the everyday joys of summer as long days and muggy weather are replaced by cooler temps and earlier sunsets. My biggest summer goodbye is putting my son on a plane to start his new job in Madrid, Spain – without a doubt the hardest. But, gradually, I will embrace my changing world and get excited about fun evenings with friends and sweatshirt-clad beach walks. And fall clothes! Joy is found everywhere and in every season. Another way I embrace change is to look for all the things I appreciate. Each morning, I take the time to write down a few and remember my many blessings. Even if you love the approach of autumn, this is a fun practice that will bring even greater joy into your day.

Thank you for reading our September issue! As always, we have lots of fun essays and beautiful ads. And, thank you, dear reader, for your continued support of Sasee – producing it is one of our greatest joys!

If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal any moment.
