Welcome to Nancy Lindemeyer's Journal. It's been quite a while since I have addressed an "audience." As editor-in-chief of VICTORIA magazine, it was always the last thing I did before an issue went to press.
Why did I say friends rather than readers? I truly felt that the women who came to the magazine each month and who were responsible for its record-breaking reader response, were indeed that. We were, nearly four million strong, friends because we were of a mind, as my grandmother used to say.
We hoped that each day was going to be the best we could make it. We believed that nice mattered in our lives, in all the meanings of that word. And we wanted to support the people in our world who were working to these ends.
I have missed the opportunity to discuss the things that are important to me. And I have missed the chance to share a great find, a good book, a good person's work. So here we go--a journal from the founding editor's desk. Though now it comes from my solarium office--and I hope I'll hear from you with all of the above, too. That's what dear friends do.
