Editor’s Letter: September

I’m only a writer out of necessity. I started writing to you each month because I want you to connect with the stories. It’s important to me.

July Letter from the Editor

Taking a break from work and home is good for the soul; making time to connect and have fun is good for the family. Why not go camping?

June Letter from the editor

Balance. Simple, right? Balance. Everyone understands what it means. You talk about balance, I talk about balance, and we are all having the same conversation. The definition may be universal, but the interpretation is very personal.

May: From the Editor

Mother’s Day: Celebration or reflection? Mother’s Day is coming up, and mothers everywhere are waking up in fear. Caught between adorable starry-eyed children with the breakfast in bed, and fear of the disaster they have left in their wake.Ok. It’s not that bad. But it’s funny to think about, right? This issue of the ECHO Magazine shows motherhood from a few different perspectives.My children are older now, so the disasters are somewhat limited. We are able to avoid breakfast in bed by making reservations at Bear Mountain Grill and eating our fill at the buffet. Other than that, Mother’s Day is kind of like any other day at my house; there is fighting, cooking and cleaning.

April Letter from the Editor

Ah April. I love the gift that April brings Alaska - the sun. I love knowing that summer is right around the corner. For my family, summer brings the busyness of fishing and camping and out-of-town guests. Sometimes that busyness is just too much. The length of days is overwhelming and I look for something to ground me.
