Issue #60 A Happy List for 2017
We’ve noticed a swell of emotions on social media these past few days ranging from hopelessness to grief to outrage to gratitude. We choose to focus on gratitude especially when it comes to you, dear reader. In fact, gratitude is why we address you as wonderful. And yet to our bewilderment an irate reader wrote in to tell us that she simply couldn’t stand being addressed as such. Curious to see if other readers feel this way we’ve put together a quick survey in hopes of giving you more of what you want and less of what you don’t. Here are 11 Questions we have for you. Thank you for sharing your helpful feedback and Happy New Year to you and yours.
