letter from the publisher

Hi there, I love how quickly this year is flying by. I’m a bit of a lover of things that go quickly. Getting from winter, to spring and now summer, seemingly faster than years gone by is so much fun for me because I also like change, so there you have it!

AMY SEDEÑO Contributor As a self-proclaimed @hotelista I do quite a bit of traveling, and from holding a tarantula in an ancient site in Guatemala to drinking high tea in Dubai, and petting grey whales in Baja, you bet I’ve got stories to tell. AVA ROSALES Features Editor I am the Caribbean. JEFFREY SOBEL Contributor All I need is a book, a bourbon and a boat to a new destination - I’ll be just fine. ANDREW INNERARITY Director of Photography It’s all about triggering emotion via imagery. When I convey the very essence of a situation with a single photograph, then I am complete, because the viewer understands more than the moment, they know the situation. BRIANA LOZANO Contributor My favorite place to travel to is one I have never been to before! New cities, new sights, new food,…

summer reading

Openness. In a world and especially a country so rigid, so stressed on definitions and categories, this story reminds us of the importance of being open. We find comfort in clearcut borders and definitions that delineate who one is supposed to be and where they belong, but at our core we’re all just humans temporarily sharing this earth. We can’t separate one another anymore than we can separate our memories. The past is never gone as our traumas and loves all swirl together inside us without walls of segregation.

Once at the top of the stairs, faced with both musician and instrument, enraptured in their journey to paint the room with a tune every bit as…
