Dear Reader,

As communities across the world and in California work hard to mitigate health risks during the COVID-19 pandemic, we are shifting our content focus and will not encourage any travel or social activities during this time.

We will, however, continue to shine a light on and celebrate the many beautiful aspects of our state with the intention of being a source of inspiration and joy during this difficult period. We will also be providing tips and resources specifically related to the COVID-19 pandemic safety measures in the coming weeks.

Our hope is to keep spirits up and to also serve as a resource.

As a reminder, is also your platform. We accept submissions from individuals across our California community - including first-time writers - who would like to share their experiences.

Do you have a random act of kindness you've observed during this crisis that inspired you? Or a fond California memory that lifts your spirit to reflect on? We'd love to have you share it. Please reach out to for more information.

Writing (and reading) plays a powerful role in staying connected and finding meaning in our lives. It's what has always fueled our passion for Our current crisis has served as a reminder of how important it is to stay connected and the content you'll see from us in the coming days will further reflect this.

Thank you for being a part of our community. Please stay safe! ⁠

With love,
