Dear readers, contributors, and staff,

Thank you for believing in the power of storytelling.  As someone who processes slowly, I chose the theme Retrospect because this past year has given us much to process.  I wanted to give people a space to think and see, and to lean into the hope of clarity.  This rest may feel far today.  I know it does for me.  Until that day comes, we have words.  We have art. We have stories. We have you.

Be loved,

Gabriele Hickman
