Sr. Helen Rita
After 17 years in the publishing house, Sr Helen Rita, a good friend of mine, has been transferred to a small community (she'll be the superior). Since sometime in 1996, we have faithfully taken a long walk together once a week, with few exceptions. She's been such a great exercising partner. Sr. Helen ran a marathon this past May in Burlington, Vermont, where she clocked a time good enough to qualify for the Boston Marathon (about 3 hours and 50 minutes; 26 miles). I'm sure she'll make a great superior, but we'll sure miss her here in Boston. She's been our main (and often only) designer and has amazed everyone with her endless supply of creative ideas for gorgeous book covers.
