Spring brings renewal. This fresh start can look like many things to different people. For me, Spring makes me feel energized and full of light. I think about how a bear hibernates and comes out with a fresh beginning. 

The world is an unknown place at this time. I feel the pressure of the pandemic, war in Ukraine and everyday life situations. But when I think of Spring, it makes me smile and feel a new energy and power. Many people are coming out of isolation and trying to build their new way of doing things. It seems the world is returning to a new way of living.

This issue is about renewal and thinking about our individual futures and what it looks like for each of us. A new way of living. In looking at the future I spoke with Edie Phillips about the housing market and how it impacts our Black buyers. Most people want a home but how is it looking for the future? You don’t want to miss what she has to say. 

I will continue to enjoy life each day as it is given to me. Life is in a constant flux but I’m learning to adjust as it comes my way. By the way, I hate routine.
