Dear Long Story Short readers/friends of Bruce Adams,

There will be no LSS column today, as longtime Spree writer (and my dear friend) Bruce Adams devotes his time to taking care of his health. A diagnosis of thyroid cancer came quite recently. Over the past few weeks, Bruce has been updating me on his health situation, and he intends to file a column whenever he is able.

Long Story Short is Spree’s most popular weekly eblast. It has been nominated for City and Regional Magazine Association awards every year that we’ve been running it. Bruce’s art writing for Spree won a CRMA award in 2004.

 Over the years, all of us at Spree have gotten to know Bruce and value him as a writer, artist, teacher, and friend. We’re fighting for him from the sidelines and we know many of you are keeping him in your thoughts as well. 

Our hearts are with you, Bruce!

Still shocked at the news. Became aware of his painting a couple years ago and recently bought a large piece and made a new friend. He hasamy people rooting for him.
