The article written by Linda Yellin "When Did Kale Get A Publicist" was one of the truest, funniest, most entertaining readings I've read in a long time. Kudos for saying it in print.
Good morning, Lesley-
I was on break at my day job just now and picked up the Gellar issue and read your letter. I had to smile about turning points and changes in the scenery for you, in Paris. It brought back memories of the last time i was in Paris, trying to find a dry cleaner. It didn't work. Your article touched a nerve as I scan my own scenery with my children this Christmas. My son is 22, my daughter 19 and I've been divorced for 3.5 years, dating someone seriously. They know mom is dating. They know it's serious. But a request for us to come to breakfast on Christmas morning - even I'm not ready for that, so i politely decline. I'll be there later in the day anyway. As for my children, they still want to know I'm there for them, even if there are moments, it feels like I'm two arm lengths away. These are new transitions.

I just wanted to let you know that I always enjoy reading your Letter from the Editor. You always have something I can relate to, especially when it involves your family. I am really enjoying reading MORE. The articles are very insightful and inspiring. Now that I am in my mid-forties, I think MORE is just what I need. Thanks again for putting together a great magazine. You and your staff are doing a wonderful job. Happy Holidays!
This is the first time I've joined but I have been reading MORE at the salon every month. I enjoy your topics and contents. I believe and practice some of the hairdressers shampooing and conditioning practices and the haircuts for your age. It gives me more products and information about those products that I share with my friends and sisters. Oh the dramatic HAND MAKEOVER! I heard about it at the gym.
Dear Ms. Seymour
You have really hit it right on . . .thank you. I have never torn anything out of a magazine in my life, until yours! I am 72 and worked for Aspen Magazine for many years so I have a little knowledge about magazines.
Hello, Lesley - This email has been a long time in mind form only and for some unknown reason it's time to make it happen.
I love MORE magazine! I've been saying that to myself for a long time! Strangely, at this time, I prefer to pick it up each month rather than subscribe. As I think about it, why do I put that pressure on myself? When I opened the June issue (I'm often several months behind in reading) I was annoyed at what seemed to be a disjointed publication. The format changed from an easy-read of articles I had come to be familiar with. That was my first impression, just paging through. And then when I got serious and began to read this issue's content I changed in my acceptance of what I came to see it was - JUST A CHANGE! The good, solid articles were still there! And I liked it!
There is one dynamic of MORE which I continue to deal with and that is that age-related articles stop at age 60! This reader is a very youthfully-minded 81 year old coming up on my 82nd celebration. Do I need to look at another magazine which would acknowledge the joyous celebration of youthful-minded octogenarians? There are always gifts which MORE brings to me - tips on beauty products, ideas for dressing the body given to me, shifts in thought such as new ways to look at longheld beliefs. I especially look forward to your Letter from Lesley. So I am truly a friend of MORE. Blessings in your continued fine effort of publishing,
