Starting January 2, 2019

"And now we welcome the new year, full of things that have never been." - Rainer Maria Rilke, Bohemian-Austrian poet and novelist (1875-1926)

Cardinals are said to symbolize hope, joy, health, rejuvenation and celebration, so we chose the photo above for the first Wanderings issue of 2019, courtesy of Kent Sweigert. While it may be appealing to settle down and hibernate a bit after all the excitement of the holidays, if you'd like to venture out, read on for some suggestions. Happy New Year, and Happy Wanderings!
