March 2019 Resources

In our magazine we generally don't cover trends that are particularly life-changing. They tend to be a little more surface. But they are important because they keep you, our readers, in the know. In this our first trends issue, we celebrate the ideas that make us happy, that celebrate humans as social creatures. Trends are a sort of currency in which we trade freely, sharing ideas and cross-pollinating cultures. They sweep us up, stay with us a while, and then lightly drop us down in a new spot to wait for the next arrival.
