editor’s letter

“THIS YEAR has brought difficulty on the one hand; on the OTHER, it has opened up opportunities WE may not have CONSIDERED.” Living the dream.

This year has brought so much difficulty and sadness on the one hand; on the other, it has opened up opportunities we may not have explored previously.
