letter publisher 16 MISAEL RODRIGUEZ A s we welcome the fall season, my mind turns to the last few months, which have been a time for internal reflection and thoughtful consideration of what matters most during these tumultuous days. A wise woman once told me: The one thing we can always count on in this world is change. Yet while the world continues to change, I'm so grateful to have the one thing that matters most and remains a constant: family — whether by blood, the friends you choose, or within your community. I want to express my sincere gratitude to the amazing community of Fort Worth that constantly supports our vision. Our one mission is to support yours. When we launched PaperCity Fort Worth a year ago, we had never heard of COVID-19. We are incredibly thankful to our wonderful partners — including Cassco, Haltom's Jewelers, the Kimbell Art Museum, the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, The Cliburn, Williams Trew, and Briggs Freeman — for helping to make the dream of a Fort Worth magazine a continued reality. My hope is that this issue serves as an escape from the chaos of daily life and provides inspiration for a colorful and exciting fall. Its pages reverberate with vibrant photography and beautiful stories and people. We've rounded up some of Fort Worth's stylish arbiters to hear what they're looking forward to this fall, and we reminisce of days before COVID-19 with a look back at the fête of the year, the Jewel Charity. We're thrilled that museums have reopened, as of this moment, and we highlight the Kimbell's "Queen Nefertari's Egypt" exhibition (page 20). You'll also find exciting news surrounding Amon Carter's upcoming exhibitions (page 44), as well as a look at architectural preservationist Brent Hull, and his newest mission throughout Texas (page 52). Of course, our take on fall fashion is sprinkled throughout as we gear up for my favorite season of the year. I hope the restlessness of our country comes to an end sooner rather than later. But I also hope you discover that these challenging times present great opportunity — for those who have found their voice, have learned to stand up for what they believe in, educated themselves on opposing views and practiced acceptance. May we all continue to stand up for our beliefs, support one another, help our incredible communities become even more welcoming places, and — perhaps most importantly — spread kindness to everyone we encounter. We look forward to seeing you around town and, come winter, look for our holiday issue.
