“The cure for anything is salt water: sweat, tears or the sea.” — Isak Dinesen WE ARE NOT EFFING AROUND! — when we say we are water lovers, we mean it!
As we finish this Winter issue that you hold in your hands, I am literally doing it in a wet wetsuit! It is November 6th, 2022 and it’s 74 degrees in Burlington Vermont. I have been spoiled the last three days due to the balmy, albeit unseasonable, temps (the planet is in trouble and Mother Earth is pissed, but that’s an article for another issue!). Over the course of the last several days I have been able to offset the stress of meeting print deadlines with miles of wing foiling, kitesurfing, and SUP downwinding. Our publisher, Russ, has been on his annual pilgramage down the east coast in his trusty VW Wesphalia enjoying plenty of water time while finishing authoring a few articles as well as reviewing the Winter issue as we reach the finish line. And you can guess that our fearless Editor-in-Chief, Evelyn, has balanced her stress with her morning ritual of longboarding perfect early morning Montauk dreamers.
So, yes, creating, producing and printing our water lovers’ magazine can be stressfull, but we can tell you that we couldn’t do it without a lot of H2O mixed in!
Just add water, Jeff
