Inside The Magazine’s October Issue

By:

Every time I look at the cover of this issue, the theme song for Reading Rainbow goes through my head. Um, sorry, if I just got it stuck in your head. But that terrific show earned a whole generation of fans for its host, LeVar Burton. He’s the kind of warm celebrity you can think of as a friend; this helps explain how he broke the Kickstarter record, raising $1 million... read more

Inside Spirit’s November Issue

By:

How cool is this: Just as I was booking excursions for a Caribbean cruise my wife and I are going on in a couple of weeks, it started snowing. I got more excited about the snow (just a dusting) than the cruise. That shows you where I lie on the winter love-hate spectrum. But I like the contrast more than anything. Beaches and palm trees are that much better when you have... read more

What Are Some of Your Great Places?

By:

Perhaps it has something to do with how, over the past two decades, technology has driven us deeper within ourselves and our living and work spaces. Maybe it’s about civic pride at a time when our cities are being eroded by neglect. Or perhaps it’s just a reflection of the pleasure we take from discovery, from a commitment to something larger than ourselves, and from... read more

For those like me who took their last math... read more

One day while sitting at my desk at work, I heard these low-pitched groaning sounds coming from the cube next to me.  Needless to say, this was unusual—even for Southwest Airlines.  Curious, I peeked over the wall to investigate and found my cube mate using her lunch hour to find a new recipe for an upcoming dinner.  Without taking her eyes off the screen, she... read more
