A Compilation of her
Letters from the Editor
1998 through 2000

Dear Friends,

I decided to share with you some of the "Letters from the Editor" I write for each issue of Radiance, so that you can get to know more about me, as publisher of this magazine, as a large woman, and as a kindred spirit on the path to greater body acceptance and self-love.

10th Anniversary IssueI want to thank Linda, the manager of one of our local clothing stores (Seams to Fit in Oakland) for her comment to me as I came into the store the other day to do some business. "I love reading your column," she said. "It really means a lot to me." We did our work, chatted a bit, I bought a few pairs of colorful, very cool magnifying glasses (I'm over 40 you know!), and left feeling appreciative that she shared that comment with me.

Others have said that, too, and I'm always a bit surprised, but grateful that what I write helps another in their life. That's what I aim for on all the pages of Radiance. So here you have the last few year's worth of my editorials. Enjoy. Feel free to back with comments, questions, ideas, feelings, and so on!

Blessings to us all as we share this journey together.
