I don't know if you've had a chance to read it yet, but there is an especially interesting interview by Marcia Sherrill on 1st Dibs right now. It's with the Editor of Southern Accents, Karen Carroll. In my opinion, Karen is one of the best magazine editors out there! Not only has she done an amazing job of taking Southern Accents to a higher level with it's recent "facelift", but she exudes warmth, graciousness and integrity that is sometimes lacking in the upper levels of the publishing business. I hold her in high regard for her taste, skill, professionalism and flawless manners. I also appreciate the kindness and support she has shown me personally as an independent artist! She manages to embody many of the positive characteristics that are often identified with being "Southern". Long live Southern Accents and long may Karen Carroll reign as the Editor!

Joni, wasn't it a great article? Fun to learn more about Karen.

There is nothing like "Southern hospitality" and Karen has graciously conveyed that in the amazing magazine -
Southern Accents. Being from Kentucky, and now having lived longer in New York, easterners often quip, "Oh you wear shoes" so I am pleased that Karen Carroll adds a comfy elegance to being "Southern."
She elevates the South.

Hi Anne,

Thanks for visiting me! We are in the midst of TS Hanna and it is very windy and raining cats and dogs! We had to close the ponies in the barn which they have not had to endure since last winter and the pool is about to overflow! Yikes! I know Ike is on the way...I hope you stay safe and dry there in FL.
