Rob Johnstone photoThis is the week that, for a lot of us, is a time to slow down a bit and consider the last 12 months. I know that I have much to be grateful for — even in this crazy year — but even so, I have decided to look forward rather than backwards.

I am an optimist by nature and for me that has proven to be a good plan. Despite difficult times that all of us go through, from which I have not been exempted, I can see the arc of my years bending towards the good. And so, in this tweener sort of week, I am thinking ahead to my grandkids going back to school full time, being able to throw a wingding of a 4th of July party and continuing to build new and satisfying projects, both for the magazine and for my family.

Here’s to a slow week and a wonderful future.
