editor’s letter

New Year’s resolutions are always hard to keep. We start off with the best intentions but by the end of January, if not sooner, our pledges have fallen away. So this year I’ve refused to make any grand statement of intent. Instead, after reading The Self-Care Solution: A Year of Becoming Happier, Healthier, and Fitter – One Month at a Time, I’m going for gentle changes, giving something new a go each month. Jennifer Ashton is the chief medical correspondent for US TV channel ABC and in her new book (you can find our review of it in our summer books special on page 162), she takes on 12 new challenges – one month at a time – to enhance her health and life. “Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating…

Letter of the month Thank you for the great Christmas issue. Packed to the rafters with all sorts of goodies and some of the best human interest stories, my favourite being the feature about Julie Andrews. I was blessed to have a private audience with her soon after the operation on her vocal chords went terribly wrong. When she lost her beautiful voice it was not only a tragedy for her but for us all. However, she picked herself up and bravely went public and had a wonderful season in Australia. She gave us a rare insight into her family life, including her two adopted Cambodian children. She spoke about The Sound of Music and how attached she still is to the children who acted as the von Trapps. My daughter had shouted…

in brief

Hello Dolly A CONTROVERSIAL statue of a US historical figure may be replaced by none other than beloved musical genius, Dolly Parton. Nathan Bedford Forrest, a confederate soldier and former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, inexplicably has been memorialised in a statue in the Tennessee Capitol building since 1978. But now local legislators are looking to replace him. “If we want to preserve history, then let’s tell it the right way. Right now there are eight [statues]. Seven are filled with white men,” said Republican Jeremy Faison. “How about getting a lady in there? My daughter is 16, and I would love for her to see a lady up there.” Suffragette heroine Anne Dallas Dudley is one suggestion, along with Dolly! A name for Welly’s wind? THE RAMPANT wind is so associated…

‘my big year of change’

If you’re Peta Mathias, and you’re turning 70 while travelling through a variety of beautiful parts of the world, you’re not going to limit yourself to just one birthday cake, are you? At the tail-end of last year, Peta enjoyed a month-long birthday celebration that took her from her home in Uzès, France, all the way to her home in Auckland – via a 10-day gourmet tour she led through India. The cake count stands at around 14: there were three macaroon-flavoured cakes presented at a party in Uzès, decorated to perfection and in the shape of a “7”, a “0” and a great big heart. In Rajasthan, the local tour manager insisted on a cake and celebration – complete with singing – every single night. And then back home…
