This photo was made by Albert Arthur Allen in 1925. Even in the Flapper Era women had a variety of body shapes --- and tummies! What has happened to us? 

WE WON ! ! !

Moxie won a
MAGGIE AWARD for BEST COVER for all magazines published west of the Mississippi in 1999 for its blue legs cover (Women/Art issue, Winter '99). This is like winning the Academy Award for Best Picture!  Kudos to Judy Lehner, the artist who painted those blue legs. They express exactly what Moxie is all about!

Pretty impressive for a magazine without a corporate budget!

The King's Book of Numerology
"There can be no doubt about the validity of Richard King's research and intuitive use of numerology. His application of this metaphysical science goes well beyond other ancient schemes such as astrology and the enneagram in giving us direction by clarifying who and what we are."
-Emily Hancock, Editor, Moxie Magazine

 1989, (c) Elly Simmons

After the first tower fell on the morning of the terrorist attacks on New York, an army of firemen and policemen marched toward the World Trade Center. A reporter asked them why they were heading into danger while others were fleeing. "Because it's our job," one said. Minutes later, they were killed when the second tower came down.

The courage of New Yorkers is demonstrated with every passing moment by those who are helping with the rescue effort now. They come away for a few hours of sleep on the sidewalk and go back in. Some of the steelworkers who built the towers are pulling huge pieces of out of their ruins now. They know that they are risking their lives, yet they have vowed not to quit until they are dragged away.

Those who are doing that grueling job have become a fraternity. Common men united by uncommon valor, they call each other "Brother." Some of the rescuers sing together as they work. An NYPD detective asked a week after the attack why he was still raking through the wreckage to find body parts of the dead said simply, "This is who we are. This is what we do."

This act of terrorism will not defeat New Yorkers. They are heroes, every one. The world's grittiest people, they are what makes New York the world's greatest city. An attack on New York is an attack on the civilized world. Although many of us are thousands of miles away, we weep with them. All of our hearts are broken.

Today we are all New Yorkers. Let us honor their courage and their losses by refusing to let this defeat us. Instead of giving in to fear or retaliating against the innocent, let us follow their lead: get to work, wear the flag, scatter roses on the Hudson River and waterways beyond.
