Latest Newsletter

I love you!

This month’s newsletter is a bit different than usual, because my literary assistant Elissa gave birth to a baby boy! She is taking some time off to care for her new baby, and for the next three months—June, July and August—I will share some previously unpublished essays from my collection Choosing Beauty. Elissa will also not be monitoring my emails during this time, so if you’d like to reach me, please write to me at:

Alexandra Stoddard
87 Water Street
Stonington, CT 06378

I will see you again in September for my usual newsletter!

Love & Live Happy,

I love you.

Thank you.

I’m bursting with joy at all the hearts and kisses I felt and received in the wondrous month of love. Mother Teresa became a saint because she loved us. Because of her genuine love for humanity, she was a natural healer. Healers are lovers ...
