To Our Readers

The seasons. They change. In the Northern Hemisphere, the cold winter days yield to the frail, tiny leaf and bud, and the warm summer breeze to the harvesting season. People. They change. They grow from infancy to adulthood. They also are changed by ideas and ideals. Society. Oh yes, it changes. It isn't today what it used to be 50 years ago.

Change is inevitable. It reminds us that we are not fossils but very much alive, and that progress is awaiting us. Why is it, then, that we sometimes resist change, or are afraid of it? Isn't it because we are creatures of habit, and that we often feel safer when nothing changes around us?

But life presents us with constant evolution. The planets never stop revolving around their axis. Our lives never stop unfolding, bringing a different perspective as we move onward. The result is progress, at times; challenges, at other times.
