How Cool Are We?

It may not be one of the first adjectives that come to mind when describing the Granite State, but when people (or states) describe themselves as “cool,” it’s often a sign that they aren’t.

New Old Home Day

“I wish that in the ear of every son and daughter of New Hampshire, in the summer days, might be heard whispered the persuasive words: Come back, come back.” — Gov. Frank Rollins, 1897

Voluntary Association

Heroics are often associated with a singular response in a moment of crisis, but what about a whole world in the aftermath of war? What do you call the thousands who answer the call?

Others Day

My very first note as editor of the precursor of this magazine was for the May issue, back in 1993. Naturally, I took advantage of the column to sneak in a quick “Happy Mother’s Day” to my mom.

Aequanimitas!

I borrowed the above title from a quotation cited by one of this year’s top doctors; mostly because I love big, useful and obscure words, but it also sums up so much in this issue.

Fashion Plates

My first foray into editing was a high school underground newspaper, cryptically titled The Shibboleth. It was intended to be revolutionary, but it included fashion notes.

Telltale Tails

With films like “The Secret Life of Pets” and “A Dog’s Purpose,” it’s easy to imagine that family pets have their own stories to tell. But it wasn’t always so.

Old Acquaintance

I first met John Harrigan in 1989, which probably seems like a long time ago to anyone under 50. To me, it seems like yesterday afternoon.

The Granite Attic

In this age of storage units and overpacked garages, the “attic” has become a cartoon cliché. But real attics hold more than just stuff.

Smarting Over

“Pam Smart?” replied my young friend. “I know the name, but I don’t know why.” It took only a few words to freshen his memory.

Perambulations

Most geographic boundaries are only visible on maps, but we still benefit from examining them up close and personally.

Butterfly and Bee

New Hampshire Magazine Editor Rick Broussard reflects on the passing of Van McLeod.

Summer Sonnet

Yo. New Hampshire. Shall I compare thee to a summer’s day? Thou art more lovely and temperate.

Best Wishes

Our Best of NH deadline falls just as summer wishes take shape. This year, for my family, there's also a wedding.

Vacation Zen

Summer is about expanding horizons, but it’s also a chance to look at some familiar things in a new way.
