When I received my January issue in the mail today, I was pleasantly surprised to see the beautiful Marisa Tomei on the cover (one of my favorite actresses). Then I opened the magazine to see an article on the talented Elizabeth McGovern of Downton Abbey (one of my favorite shows).

More will continue to be the one piece of mail I actually look forward to receiving each month!

Thank you for the article "Blessing of the Animals".  It could not have come at a better time for me. Our family recently lost a little rescue puppy to cancer. Though we were only privileged to have had Daisy for a short time she will forever be in our hearts.  She had a rough road as a young stray getting to her forever home and was so grateful to be with us. I wish more people would consider adopting. These animals so need our help and it is amazing what they give back to us.

I always enjoy reading my monthly issue of More magazine and enjoy your Letter from the Editor section. This month’s article however left me sad and wondering how a highly accomplished and educated woman could be so careless as to let a cat outside unattended to get, as you say, "assumed hit by a car". What? As an animal lover and cat owner, I would never leave my precious cats outside by themselves without being on a leash or in a protected area. This is pet ownership rule 101. Please Meredith, let Miu's spirit guide you to do better with Zeus and Rain....keep them inside where they belong.

Thank you so much for the cover story on my favorite actress, Marisa Tomei. I enjoyed reading about her professional endeavors, her ability to maintain friendships, and her desire to keep her Italian culture of cooking special dishes as a time-honored tradition. 
The next time she has another movie coming out, such as Love, Marilyn, please do another editorial piece on Marisa; she reveals a lot to women in our age range. 

We may be in our forties, but look like we are in our thirties.  Thanks.

I love More Magazine's articles. It is so refreshing to read about peers and cohorts instead of twenty or thirty somethings!

I loved the Dec/Jan issue's "The Blessing of the Animals". I wonder if that could become a regularly featured section.

In addition it is very disheartening to pick up a fitness magazine and have those same twenty somethings sporting a toned body that is more youth-aquired than sweat-induced. Not to mention the abundance of energy those individuals reserve compared to their elder counterparts. Let's face it, it's not an accident that road races have age categories or that tennis greats retire at thirty!

I would love a regular fitness section of fit, 40-50 somethings that achieve amazing fitness and realistic but admirably toned bodies. They could share their stories about routines and diets and special extras that work for them. You know, like Shape mag, or Muscle and Fitness Hers, or Fitness, etc... those articles are related to a young population and are seemingly unrealistically achievable for those of us who are pre and post menopausal.  Just a thought. 

First of all, I would like to start by letting you know what a wonderful publication I think More is...I still remember thinking, oh, no, that is for "OLDER WOMEN", I will never read it...well, here I am, on the far side of over 40, and loving it!

It was with interest that I read your Letter from the Editor in the December issue, regarding your cats.  I am deeply sorry for the loss of your Miu-Miu.  Having lost three of my beloved elderly cats in the last year and a half, the last one, Tricki Woo, just a couple of weeks ago, I completely understand the sense of loss. 

Share Your Thoughts!

Can you please tell me who designed Marisa Tomei's dress as seen on your cover. Gorgeous!

Emboldened to speak by the trite and trivial
I shall endeavor to remain quite convivial;
although I love thee More... or less
it is Shakespeare et al that was a MESS.
The drivelof reading made me so ill
that pepto bismol I did swill.No more of that, I ask..
I have to bring you all to task.

Regarding your February 2013 issue - Katie Couric has proven herself as a serious and respected journalist. Her longtime co-worker says what you see is what you get. Katie is the same person "in person". Therefore I find it ironic that you would point out the controversy where CBS photoshopped 20 pounds off Katie and then proceed to photoshop your cover to erase nearly every wrinkle and blemish. She has the skin of a teenager in your picture. Why?


I want to change my password. Also I want to read issues on line so that I can file articles, recipes, etc. in electronic file versus paper files.
