LETTER FROM THE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Devorah Rose, Nomi Ellenson Photography

Something about August always feels drenched in feeling. It’s that time of year when we are hyper aware of the season slowly slipping away, and we want to get everything we can out of it. There is something exciting about approaching a day like you might a flattened tube of toothpaste. Attempting to squeeze out the last remnants of summer’s balmy days brings a heightened awareness — something I believe truly helps one relish the moment. Have you planned out every inch of your August weeks? Will you revisit your favorite restaurants or recreate any particularly fun dinner parties? What were the most meaningful moments for you this summer? For me, family time is what I enjoy most. Having so many loved ones visit us Out East this summer was definitely the highlight. And spending time with our dogs and contributing to animal charities always make me feel so happy. Animal Hope and Wellness is one of my favorite animal charities in the country. In the Hamptons, I remind people to visit Last Chance Animal Rescue in Southampton as well as ARF in East Hampton. The work both of these organizations do year round for animals is important and they need our support. I hope your August is full of dusty orange sunsets and meaningful get-togethers. Warmly,

“August rushes by like desert rainfall, A flood of frenzied upheaval, Expected, But still catching me unprepared. Like a matchflame Bursting on the scene, Heat and haze of crimson sunsets. Like a dream Of moon and dark barely recalled, A moment, Shadows caught in a blink. Like a quick kiss; One wishes for more But it suddenly turns to leave, Dragging summer away.”
