While that number may not sound all that special, it’s meaningful to me, as this issue is my last as editor. I’m moving on to something new, and while change is scary, it’s also exhilarating. As I ponder the road ahead, though, I can’t help but reflect on the last two […]
I went to see a movie at The Springs Cinema & Taphouse recently, and as I laid back in the fully-reclining and heated—yes, heated!— seat, watching the previews and munching my popcorn, I thought to myself, What could be better than this on a rainy Sunday afternoon?
