We’ve spent weeks at home trying to protect the most vulnerable among us. We are hopeful that May flowers will indeed spring forth from the showers of April challenges. 

“Though I do not believe that a plant will spring up where no seed has been, I have great faith in a seed.” -Henry David Thoreau.

This issue is filled with stories about the seeds of local ideas from which great things have sprung!

Humans crave connection. In this issue, we cover a few touchpoints of common connection: pets, board games, sports, volunteering and even a good cup of coffee.

W.C. Fields joked that, “Once, during Prohibition, I was forced to live for days on nothing but food and water.” We’re all smiles to celebrate food and “MORE” in this issue!

For us, winter is more than just a season. In Minnesota, it is a celebration! In this issue we celebrate the beauty of fresh starts, fresh snow and some of the most fun and fashionable ways to warm up.

This issue shines some festive light on a few of the great things folks are doing all around Edina. Kudos to you! It is our hope that these stories might resonate like the Japanese proverb that says, “One kind word can warm three winter months.”
