    Letter from Editor

    Summer is a difficult time to grieve. It seems so incongruous to be teary amidst the sunshine, outdoor concerts, and fireworks. Everyone else seems to be having such a good time. It’s hard to find a place to fit in. And the memories of great summers gone by rush back – even passing by our favorite ice cream shop conjures up memories. Sure, I could get in line for a cone, but it’s just not as much fun by myself.

Widowed Humorist Launches “Poor Widow Me” Column in Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey

By: Dr. Joanne Z Moore, PT, DHSC, OCS

Carol Scibelli

Poor Widow MeEast Lyme, Conn.— Carol Scibelli, an award-winning freelance humor writer and speaker, is launching her column, “Poor Widow Me,” in the new national magazine Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, beginning with the April 2015 issue.

Scibelli of Manhattan, New York, is the author of the memoir, Poor Widow Me: Moments of feeling & dealing & finding the funny along the way (Pigeon Press, 2011.) Book excerpt: “While I was waiting for his death to sink in, I’d sit on the floor of my closet, talking directly to my husband’s shirts and pants. They were unresponsive, but I knew in my heart that his Dockers missed me very much, too.”*

Scibelli says, “My humor column, ‘Poor Widow Me,’ is about finding the funny in widowhood. When life goes wrong, isn’t that the right time to lighten it with humor?”

Pathfinder publisher, Dr. Joanne Z. Moore of East Lyme, Conn., said, “Carol's down-to-earth humor takes the edge off of stress, and helps us to see things in perspective. Learning how to laugh again after the loss of a spouse is so important. I'm thrilled to share Carol's insights with our readers."

Scibelli’s humorous essays have been published in The New York Times, Newsday, The Hartford Courant, and dozens of weekly publications. She received first place in Writer's Forum Magazine’s “Imitation Erma Bombeck Contest” and received several Long Island Press Club Awards for Humor.

Scibelli is a member of the New York Friars Club, an association of comedians and celebrities, where she heads the “Meet Your Fellow Friars” committee and contributes to its newsletter, Friar’s Epistle.

The lifestyle magazine, Pathfinder: A Companion Guide for the Widow/er’s Journey, offers advice on money, health, home, travel, friendship, dating, and return to work, in addition to inspirational articles on spirituality, art, poetry, and developing new hobbies. It includes stories of modern and famous historical people who have either lived the widowed stage of life well or have struggled.
