This is Milkweed, from my garden, photo made with an iPhone 5S.

Hope you are having an enjoyable summer. As a teacher, I feel it sometimes takes the entire summer just to catch up, on everything, including laundry! I’ve been working in my garden, and on a book project that I had set aside— life gets in the way sometimes and I’m delighted to be back working on it. We are also working hard on issue # 2. Our volunteer staff, including our writers are doing a fantastic job of fitting THP into their busy schedules. Issue #2 should appear in August. We’ll also be sending you a survey in the next couple of weeks to ask you about how you like to read online e-Zines and magazines. Please sign up for our mailing list if you haven’t already- the form is on the front page so we can hear from you!

If you are reading this it means you are in front of your smartphone or computer…time to turn it off and go make a photograph!
