Editor’s Letter: July 2012


We kicked off July by following the sage advice of inventor, sheepherder, and explorer John Muir, who encouraged us to carve out some time to roam. We took life a little easier and made sure to savor each moment. We even let our mountain man beard grow out for a while.

But then we rolled up our sleeves. This month, we got organized.

The ensuing month was filled with as many misfires and wrong turns as epiphanies and successes.
