Joslyn Wolfe - Publisher

When illusions are abound, discernment is our greatest ally. From Social Media. to cable news sources, to self-serving messengers, and from as Shakespeare puts it, statements from those who feed us half-truths that lead us to our harm. All can be ingredients that make up a main course of gluttonous information stemming from sources of dubious intent. In the absence of critical thinking, we may find ourselves in a self-imposed eclipse of misinformation. In essence, to be well informed, and armed with truth, it behooves us to question the maelstrom of information that surrounds us, take time to examine the motives of the source and look beyond the facade of appearances to probe deeper to determine facts from fiction. It is through these means that we are empowered to make informed decisions to improve the quality of our lives, our community and our world.

"Fair is foul and foul is fair." -- William Shakespeare

Happy Summer,

All the best,
Joslyn (Joslyn Wolfe, Publisher)
