As the responsibility-free hours of spring break fade from (if we are lucky) our rested minds, I am reflecting on the importance of getting out: out of my head, out of my house, out of my zip code.

It’s the time of year where the half-empty cup perspective flips into half-full. In my life, I have celebrated 15 Thanksgivings. Plus even more with my parents be...

Last night’s election determined so many things beyond who our next president will be. For example, nine states had marijuana measures on the ballot. At least seven of those passed with one measure yet to be determined. Arizona voters did not legalize marijuana while four of those states made medical...
