Mary Doria Russell's article ["Act III," May 2005] provided me with comfort, laughter, reassurance and hope that things will probably get worse before they get better. All I can add is, Amen! This note has to be brief because I still have to finish my mother's eulogy for tomorrow, write the check for the trapper who caught five raccoons and one groundhog in our barn, work on the guest list for my son's upcoming wedding, read the manual for the new car that I had to buy and think about the lessons and end-of-the-year reports I must write for each of my students.

Remembering an Inspiration
I am the aunt of Maureen Lowis, whom you mentioned in your wonderful article regarding music and medicine ["Dr. Bach," May 2005]. You might want to write an article about Maureen Lowis and her Web site, www. maureenlowis.com, which she used to inspire thousands of people all over the world before losing her fight with cancer. She and her husband, Terrance, touched so many lives. Their story is an inspiration for all, including those who are terminally ill.

What the Doctor Orders
If you really want to enjoy Chinese food that is inexpensive and tasty, with great service and comfortable ambience, I highly recommend Wok with Wing, located at 30519 Pinetree Road in Pepper Pike.

Evidently Cleveland Magazine readers haven't been out to Sunday brunch
much lately. Pier W has been under reconstruction for several months ["Silver
Spoon Awards," May 2005]. I recommend the "Smooth Jazz Brunch"
at Pickwick & Frolic. The atmosphere is upscale, relaxed and family friendly
with great music. So while folks are sitting on the dock of the bay waiting
for brunch, I'll be enjoying mine at Pickwick & Frolic.
Editor's Note: Lakewood's Pier W reopens for business this month, following
a $3 million renovation. Check out "News Bites" on page 64 for more
Correction: Our May 2005 "Silver Spoons Awards" gave an incorrect
address for Anatolia Café, 13915 Cedar Road, South Euclid. Cleveland Magazine
regrets the error.
