A note from the editors

Dear Dialann.org visitors:

While Dialann.org is new, we have produced Dialann—our family’s journal-in-the-form-of-a-magazine, on which the site is based—since January 2011. Over the next several weeks, we will be posting many of the articles that have appeared in past issues of our magazine to this site. As you visit our site, you may notice articles and links that are missing, and you may see that various issues of the magazine or features of the site are incomplete. If you sign up to receive email notifications of new articles posted (see the bottom of the sidebar to the right), please note that, as we complete this process of publishing past material online, you will likely receive notifications about articles that are as much as two years old.

Thank you for your understanding as we launch this new project. We’re glad to have you along for the ride.

—Susan, Dustin, and Fiona Continue reading A note from the editors

A year of tremendous change and upheaval

In 2011, we continued the tradition we started in 2010: a letter to loved ones updating them on our lives over the past year. Many of our friends and family received this letter in the mail, accompanied by one of two lovely Christmas cards that Susan’s had for years and that we were trying to get rid of. Everyone else was able to read this letter on Facebook. Continue reading A year of tremendous change and upheaval
