Dear friends & family,

Greetings from Spain! Right now we are in Barcelona, where there are more motorbikes than cars.  Where shops really do close up midday and people nap. Where dinner starts at 9. Where every few blocks is a flower shop, selling pots of rosemary, mint and jasmine.  And where the architecture makes this one of the most beautiful cities in the world. 

If you have kids (or maybe you are one, yourself), make travel abroad a priority.  Become familiar -- if not fluent -- in another language. Let us all be amazed at each other's wonders. 

To see the April issue, click here. Or pick up a copy on the newsstands. And thanks for reading.

Blog Updates 
The veils between the universes grow increasingly thin this week, and as this transparency clarifies what was previously hidden, we have almost too many opportunities to witness what's already in motion.
