I was turned onto this magazine by a wonderful friend named Hannah. I’d never heard of it until then and I consider myself a pretty diverse reader. The first thing appealing about The Sun is that it has NO ADVERTISING. Some of the mags I read don’t get to the meat until at least page 50. The Sun has such thoughtful and provocative writing–both fiction and non-fiction. I mark so many pages in every issue for books I want to read, subjects I am curious about, quotes. Just love it!

One of the things I marked from the August 2010 issue:
In a letter written by Eve Kushner in Berkeley, California, speaking about writer Genie Zeiger: Genie said that our relationships with our parents keep evolving, even after our parents die. She spoke about a healing dream she had in which her father had embraced her and showered her with approval as never before.–
I really like the idea of this and it would be so comforting for it to be true. Although I am lucky enough to have both my parents alive I know there are others in my life who have died and who have left unfinished business. It would be nice to see them in a dream and make things right.
