Publishers Letter. Aug 2013

Hello Readers and Friends,

The glorious, glorious summer is in full bloom.  Yes, I said glorious twice because August deserves it one more time than July!  As we inspire you this month with a cover colored in yellow sunflowers, we hope your internal experience of summer is just as glorious as our August cover!  

After viewing this cover myself, I had an immediate desire to be in a field of sunflowers as this woman is.  I went online and serached and found that the largest sunflower field in the northeast is in Sussex County, New Jersey and is called Sussex County Flower Maze –  Watch Video Here!   The story behind this suflower field is that a couple who emigrated to the US from Thailand, started working in the fashion industry first in Manhattan and then bought the property to start a new life with the intention of turning it into a golf course.  Well, the state told them they were not allowed to destroy the sunflower fields to protect an endangered turtle.  This is how their new story began!  I plan to take time to visit this field and also their natural cafe that they have created on the premesis called Roseline's Farm & Bakery.

If for any reason you can't make it to the sunflower fields, there are a plethoa of health and wellness events throughout New York and the tri-state area.  To see all of these events live, visit our cityguide!


Feel Good, Live Simply, Laugh More,
