Thanks For The Memories

By Alejandro Grattan-Dominguez

It is with a sad but grateful heart that I advise our wonderful readers and writers that because of eyesight problems, I must bring my 25-year tenure as the Ojo’s editor to a close. It has been a joyous ride, made possible by Richard and David Tingen, to both of whom I extend my deepest gratitude for their professional support, as well as their friendship. I also want to thank Victoria Schmidt, my close associate and friend, who will now take over the editorial reins of the Ojo. She has long been my trusted associate, both at the Ojo and with the Ajijic Writers’ Group, and prior to coming to Lakeside was a lady with many and extensive professional accomplishments. Finally, I want to thank Roberto Rojas, the Ojo’s production designer, for his unstinting professional support and unflagging friendship.

In this deeply troubling worldwide moment, I’ll close by wishing our beloved little community the best of luck.

This is where I get to say hello in my new capacity as the editor-in-chief of El Ojo del Lago. I am both honored and humbled that Alejandro Grattan-Dominguez and David Tingen have entrusted me with what has become the go-to magazine for Lakeside’s old-timers and newcomers alike, and will do my best to guide this publication in a similar manner as Alex has for the past 25 years. In addition to writing for the Ojo for the past 13 years, my background includes editing a publication which won a national award, and prior to that I acted as editor or was on the editorial staff of three other publications. I also worked as a speechwriter for several individuals who held state offices in their corporations in Minnesota.
