My daughter, Hope McGonigle, and I earned a free year’s subscription for an article that will appear in the Nov./Dec. issue of Natural Life. I opened my first issue today and read:

“Our blind spot is because we are drunk on individual freedom, which is the teenage stage of maturity,” says Terry Mollner, one of […]

In other words, as we write in the article, think outside the sandbox to create a natural world—a family-friendly backyard that […]
