I don't use Facebook so an old fashioned email will have to do: On a recent morning at my gym I picked up the February 2013 issue of More, to read while I warmed up on the treadmill. I happened to read your column, Dreams of My Daughter, and smiled when I saw your daughter's name. My daughter is named Lake, too. She turned 30 in the fall and is pregnant with her first child. It was fun to read your column and think back to when "our Lake" was finishing high school and all the milestones she has passed since then.
Now I will be a grandmother for the first time and want to maintain the balance I've always sought, of being there when she needs me without interfering with the way she choses to live her life, which now includes how she choses to raise her children. I am happy to say we have a close relationship, one based on mutual trust and respect, so I expect the rewards of having Lake in my life will continue to accrue.
Good luck to you and your daughter as she makes her way in the next phase of her life, and you in yours.
My wife shared your article with me - I enjoyed it. I am planning college tour to the Bay Area over Spring Break. I can really relate, so thanks
I just received the Feb. 2013 issue of More. Most of the time I am impressed with the content of the magazine and appreciate reading articles of quality. However I must say that your standards have really been lowered with articles like "If great poets had sexted....."., page 26. If I wanted to read "WTF", "CW 2 get u hard" and "Wanna tie u up, spank u, lick ur arms, legs, face n toes" kind of rubbish, I can pick up a rag or look on the internet for free. You are so much better than this! The author not only lowered More's standards, but insulted famous poets, and More's readers. I pay for a quality magazine, please respect my intelligence and maturity.
MORE is an enjoyable magazine that I look forward to browsing. But today I didn't get very far before noticing your ad with a picture of Andy McDowell's face....and not a line in it. This isn't us. In fact, in my world, it is called a lie. Then I just read about the evolution of the single girl...SINGLE WOMEN ON TV. More lies! This is about devolving....not progress. Take a look at the Proverbs 31 woman and see what you can do with that.

I am 49 years old and started reading More a few years ago when I found Health magazine to be a bit too young for me. I've enjoyed the articles in More and really feel like they are age appropriate for me.
I've never written in with reader feedback before but I just finished the article in the October issue (yes, I'm a little behind) titled "On the brink of making a billion" about Jessica Herrin and wanted to give some. I am all for hearing about successful women and how they become so. Good for her! I am not pleased to read an article touting the success of a multi-level marketing scheme. The way these MLM businesses work is that the top people get very wealthy and the bottom people drain their savings to succeed and eventually have to drop out. MLMs feed on finding more and more lemmings. I currently have a friend at the bottom of an MLM and try as I may to convince her to cut her losses and get out now, she will not and is determined to succeed. I really wish these home businesses could restructure themselves and offer healthcare and a base salary plus commissions, instead of a cut going to your superior and so on and so on. I have no idea how to make that kind of change though. Anyways, I was disappointed that this article glorified an MLM. I think the article is a disservice to women looking for flexible ways to earn money.
