From the Editor

LAST FALL I had a Fri­day af­ter­noon rit­ual. At the end of the day I checked my email in­box for a note from my son’s teacher. She told us about all the fun the chil­dren had, the spe­cial projects they did or when they earned a pa­jama day. Some­times she let us know when things didn’t go as planned, like the time some of her stu­dents got a lit­tle too rowdy dur­ing an assem­bly. I guess mak­ing silly faces was a lot more fun than lis­ten­ing to the prin­ci­pal speak. Her notes kept me con­nected to the class­room in the same way that your letters con­nect me to all of you. I love read­ing your re­ac­tions to the sto­ries in this mag­a­zine. On page 8, we’ve brought back the Mail­box so we can share your letters with fel­low read­ers. So if you think Hilda Red­wing (page 54) is as amaz­ing as I do, tell us. Or if Feli­cia Schneiderhan’s story about Michi­gan’s Por­cu­pine Moun­tains (page 38) in­spires you to visit, send us a few lines and a photo. You’ll find all the de­tails on page 8. Un­til then, have a happy fall and a blessed Thanks­giv­ing.
