March 2016

We’ve let you, the readers, in on this particular trade “secret” before, and feel it’s the perfect time to mention it once again: it’s not yet March — as we write this, anyway.

The magazine industry is always working in the future, which means Nature’s Pathways is constantly thinking ahead. So while it’s 4 degrees on this chilly afternoon in February, we’re putting the finishing touches on this March issue you’re reading on a much more mild, spring-like day (we hope!).

It can be a challenge, but in reality there’s something special about seemingly going through time twice: as we prepare for it in advance and as we live it in real time. It’s taught us a few things about how truly fleeting moments can be and that it’s important to stop and smell the flowers (whenever they decide to arrive in our wintry state!).

We encourage you to do the same. Relax with a cup of coffee or tea, relish in the changing of the seasons and savor the wisdom our local experts have chosen to share this month.
