I have been a MORE subscriber since its first year of publication - and the magazine just gets better with age. (Just like your readers, right?) And I give a subscription to MORE to my several of girlfriends as their birthday gift. Whenever we get together we talk about what we liked in the latest issue.
We were all moved by the wonderful article by Isabel Wilkerson "An American Reborn in Paris." Thank you for publishing it - as it was a bit of a history lesson as well as a spiritual travel journey.
Although I resisted reading her book - because I know intimately of the pain and bitterness she describes as it mirrors the story of my family - I instantly downloaded after I read her story in MORE. And despite my crazy busy schedule, I finished the book in a few days.
Thank you MORE, for bringing inspiring articles, information and authors to my mailbox every month!
I just wanted to let you all know how much I enjoyed the article "Field Guide to the Mature male". So very funny and so very true. Thanks!
I love reading your column each month. I just wanted to share that it was good thing we had our first fall rainy weekend in Boston just when my October issue arrived. I kicked out the boyfriend, baked and cooked and did my seasonal clothes swap and read every article laughing and crying. You continue to outshine yourselves! I love the serious change-the-world articles, the what to do with aging parents nostalgic articles, the coming of middle-age ruminations, travel stories and political commentary. The multi-page look at middle-aged men took you to a new level of silliness!
Thank you for being a great comfort and reading escape. I am a huge book reader and Netflicks watcher yet when More hits my mailbox, the wine is poured and life is suspended while I dream and think about how rich my life is at 54. You help me do that every month.
I could do with a LOT less makeup articles and ads (I wear makeup, but it stays pretty minimal due to my longtime good livin’ habits). Are there are sources of ad revenue? I am doing my part by turning friends and family onto MORE. As your circulation increases maybe so will the types of products you share with us.
YOU and the MORE TEAM ROCK!
This isn’t the first time I have written you – and I will probably contact you again!
In the Sept. issue, you discuss the guide to midlife friendship.
I see the perspective from your point of view, from the point of view of a young girl, and from my own 78 year old point of view. I want to tell you, the best is yet to come.
I would like to introduce you to Anna Zornosa, my daughter. She is 50 some, as is your friend. She has started many companies, and was at last able to sit down and catch her breath. As soon as she did, she started another company, RUBYRIBBON which you can easily find on Facebook or Google. Please take a minute to do so, you will be pleased to meet her.
Her Dad, my husband, is from Colombia, South America. Our four children have been raised here, as much a part of their own communities as it is possible to be. She has had some adversities, but from my point of view, being a strong, active woman has caused her more problems than being half Spanish! Problems she has faced and used to become successful.
Now I must catch up on my reading. I save MORE for taking with me on trips, or for opportune moments at home, and I am on the Sept. issue now.
Your friend (on paper?)
