From the Editor

Lately I’ve found that gratitude is a very powerful way to improve my life. Upon the suggestion of a friend I started keeping a gratitude journal, and every day I write at least five things that I’m grateful for. At first, it was really hard to do, but gradually I’ve come to look forward to […]

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 […]

Last month I interviewed Vernie Dove, a man who loves to read Sasee. Since then, I’ve heard from quite a few male readers and have enjoyed their comments. But, once in awhile I receive a very special letter. One of those was a note from Bob Akanewich. He wrote to thank us for the theme […]

As the editor of Sasee, I have had the opportunity to interview quite a few fascinating women (and a couple of men). They have allowed me to tell their stories and opened up the doors of their lives to all of our readers. Some of their stories have been extremely painful, but not one of […]

My husband and I have started kayaking in the creeks near Black River. We both love being near and in the water, but this has been a new experience for me, as I have always spent much more time around the ocean and salt marshes. We launch the kayaks into a swamp filled with towering […]

I was raised by “green” parents. Of course, they didn’t know they were environmentally conscious, and I’m positive they never gave a thought to saving the planet. They were just doing what came naturally to them and living life the best they knew how. If something broke around the house, my father fixed it. If […]

I share my home with four wild and crazy little dogs, and a lot of what I’ve learned about attitude came from them. All of them are mine because someone else did not want them. Hermione, a mutt, was abandoned along Hwy. 17 when she was little more than a puppy, and the other three […]

It is hard to stay stressed out this time of year. For me, the mild temperatures and profusion of blooming plants provide the perfect antidote for any stress. I have also found that organizing my surroundings brings peace to my life. I know that many of you can relate to the calm that accompanies a […]

Our “Forgiveness” issue of Sasee inspired many writers from around the country, and even the world, to submit essays describing an experience they’ve had with forgiving, or being forgiven. All of them were good; many were excellent and required a second reading before I could move on. The theme running through all of them, even […]

The word “heart” is used to express nearly all aspects of the human experience. Think about the phrase, “didn’t have the heart,” used to convey a lack of courage, but then consider that “take heart” means to gain courage. You “set your heart” on what you want, and “cross your heart” to express sincerity, but […]
