Letter from the Editor
Dear Around Wellington Readers,
Happy March and Happy St. Patricks Day!
Weve had a theme of Making a Difference for the month of March for the past three years of the print magazine Around Wellington®, so it seems fitting to keep it going with . In our AW Stories of the Month (also under Mommy Moments), we feature four local moms who find a way to balance their work, volunteer work and responsibilities as mothers. Youll meet Andrea McKenney, Amy Roberts, Lois Spatz and Lisa Dawn Wax and see how theyre making a difference in our community. I was inspired by each one of them, as they show us how they make it work, sometimes struggling and sometimes making it look easy.
Also in our AW Stories of the Month, writer Marla E. Schwartz introduces us to Isabella . Yes, the beautiful Rossellini dares to venture into the mating habits of bugs, marine animals and other animals, while sharing her passion for environmental conservation at the same time. Also see one of the videos to get a glimpse of Rossellini in one of her anatomically correct costumes.
Marla Schwartz also gives us an exclusive interview with the husband and wife team of Michael Tucker and Jill Eikenberry (of L.A. Law fame). They talk about their new book FAMILY MEALS: Coming Together to Care for an Aging Parent. Tucker was the author and Eikenberry was the editor.
Get ready ahead of time for Earth Day with Living Green! Christine Powell Smith brings us Five Ways to Celebrate Earth Day.

On the lighter side this month, you will love Alan Williamsons , an investigative look into his own, ridiculously-large collection of drinking glasses. You will also laugh out loud (as I did) at Wendell Aberns Laments of a Senior Stud Wannabe. OK, so Internet dating is not for everyone, especially those with critical kids.
Our column this month focuses on the Palm Beach Poetry Festival, including an interview with Miles Coon, the founder of the festival. Also see photos from the festival under our Photo Galleries. One of the festivals participants David Plumb provides a wonderful poem this month (see ). Plumb is the author of a recent book, Poetry on Strings.
Feeling a little down and gray from the unusually cold winter weve had? Get inspired with Lighten Up with Lisa. This month she writes With the Sun Comes a Time for Congratulations, not Condolences. Its a motivational piece about the beauty of spring and a non-denominational treatment of the symbols in Easter and Passover. Thanks for the spring cheer, Lisa!
If youd like a little more pet knowledge, read Frances Goodmans helpful this month. She answers a readers question about some questionable black spots on the dogs tongue.
As usual, theres something for everyone! This is just a taste of what our March issue brings. Heres our March table of contents. Feel free to explore.
