Winter in New England—bring it on! It isn’t for everyone, but those of us who don’t follow the loons to unfrozen habitats stay for a reason. Or should I say, many reasons: groomed trails for the quick—or not-so-quick—cross country ski adventure. More trails winding through the woods for snowshoeing or for a winter hike. Hills for that old-fashioned childhood activity, sledding. And for those, young and old, who still strap on blades, the rink and lake await their figure eights.
And, of course, cozying up beside a fireplace or woodstove with a good book or Eastman Living . . . .
In this issue, we introduce you to some Eastman residents and ECA staff who make their livings on ice and snow, and to others who capture views of the community through very different lenses. Prism is a collection of perspectives of and insights into life in Eastman in poetry and prose coupled with photos of scenes in Eastman. Tradition meets technology in Images from Above, Brookside Explored, and Eastman Goes Viral!
Finally, beginning with this issue, we invite readers to participate in a new challenge and guess the identity of a mystery photo. Does life get any better in winter?
