Letter from the Editor: Moving Forward

Letter from the Editor: Moving Forward

Home means many things, but in my experience the actual place isn’t nearly as important as the people who make up your family. Our small staff is also a family, and the office is certainly our home away from home – we spend many hours a week with our work family and over the years strong bonds are formed. Celia Wester was one of the first friends I made when I started working for Strand Media Group 13 years ago. An account executive, Celia’s outgoing personality and kind heart made her popular with her clients, most of whom became her friends. What I soon found out is that Celia is an amazing artist. Her work has graced the Sasee cover several times, been the poster contest winter twice for Pawleys Island Festival of Music & Art, plus won numerous awards through the years. When my youngest granddaughter, Ellis, told me she wanted “art,” I immediately thought of Celia and bought a beautiful print that now hangs in Ellis’ bedroom. Most of the staff have at least one of Celia’s prints hanging proudly in their homes.

On January 15th, Celia retired after 16 years to dedicate herself full-time to her art. All of us love her dearly and will miss her smiling face walking in the office with a cup of coffee in one hand and a huge bag in the other. But, our loss is the art world’s gain. We all love you Celia – and can’t wait to see what this next chapter brings.

Life isn’t as serious as the mind makes it out to be.
