A Note from the Publisher:

WE’RE BACK BABY! After a long summer of building a better, stronger publication, it is so good to be back in print and in our third year of creating an entity that has taken on its own kind of magic. The support we’ve received is breathtaking; every month there is only more to fall in love with about this deeply diverse, colorful, sparkly, and sparky band of rock huggers, tree angels, dream weavers, cactus cultivators, earth healers, soul lifters, snake and spider savers, and loving creature keepers. We hope to see all of you at the family reunion also known as The Second Annual Joshuas Honors Galla, Sunday, October 29, 2023, at the Joshua Tree Retreat Center. There is so much to CELEBRATE!
