Editor's Note Vol 3: Iss 2

When I think of the contributions in this issue, the thought that comes to mind is reflection. The written pieces tell stories of life moving forward and stories reflecting on life past; stories of pain and suffering and of letting go of too much too soon; the reflection of the life of a beloved parent, an addict, and those contemplating retirement—even a story of the serendipity of the unexpected desire for a shot of tequila.

The visual art pieces highlight the hands of a surgeon, the hands of an athlete, and the "hands" of an eagle; a shoulder series, and an inviting autumn day.

An Olympic athlete diligently prepares his hands for a routine on the “Rings.” This photograph was taken at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO, home to many Olympians and hopefuls throughout the year. The photograph was taken using a Nikon D700 DSLR and an 85mm f/1.4 lens using available light.
