Letter from the Editor

As summer continues, here's hoping that you are all enjoying it. Summer vacation, days at the beach with familly, or just an all-around slower pace is good for all of us in order to recharge and regroup.

Here's another issue of Della Donna, filled with the stories of women like ourselves and what their lives are like. In our Lifestyles section, we hear from a mom who is very grateful to the driver of the yellow school bus (what will she do this summer?). In Spirituality, another woman describes her fear of death and how overcoming cancer gave her a new outlook on life. We have an excellent poem entitled "I'm No Princess," in which fairy tale allusions abound and social constructs are shattered. And much more ... hope you enjoy it.
