Publisher’s Note: June 2021

Publisher’s Note: June 2021

I take a deep breath . . . I feel warm air hit my lungs . . .  yes, it is June. The world is coming alive, the shade from trees is blooming.  

There is always new growth—it is a message to remember. We can start over, give ourselves a chance to rejuvenate become who we wish to be. Like a beautiful spring morning. 

I embrace the joy of women, the stamina to always bounce back. I so believe in each and every one of you. Now it is time for you to believe in you.  

It is time to honor your new growth, during these challenging times.  

I have always felt the biggest foe to having a balanced life, is keeping our noses to the grindstone. If we keep our noses so close to the grindstone, we may miss the glorious wonders around us. I encourage you all to take a deep breath, take in the gifts of this earth, hear the birds singing to us all.  

Please let’s honor June with our love for this glorious earth, and all who walk it.  

So many of you, take the time to call and write. I am so very grateful for your continued support of Maine Women Magazine. Remember, it is you who makes this all happen. I welcome all ideas. 

I will share one of my favorite quotes from poet Lord Byron: 

“There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,   

There is a rapture on the lonely shore.   

There is society, where none intrudes, 

But the deep Sea, and music in its roar.”
