Welcome Update #59


Brian A. Palmer, Editor in Chief

Today is my birthday. I have successfully completed my 29th full revolution around the sun. It is hard to believe that I am in my last year of my twenties and that my thirties begin next year. The past decade has been fun, but I am more than ready to begin a new chapter. 

I was speaking with a friend the other day about this and she commented that nothing really changes with a birthday, that it is just another day. Although this is true, it is more what the birthday can mean. For me, it is a checkpoint. It is an easily remembered day every year where I can stop and reevaluate what has happened and what I what to happen. 

The past year has had many ups and downs. I saw the release of my first magazine. I moved into a new home. I started a new career. I have had the opportunity to work with many wonderful people on this project; some still here while some have moved on. 

As I move into the next year I plan to focus on all of the amazing things yet to come. In September we will see the results of the first ever Palmer Grove Photo Contest and the entries thus far have been incredible. September will also be the release of the next issue of Palmer Grove as well as the new GVP publication Underscore. GVP Graphics will be released in the next month and beginning next week all of the current and previous issues of Palmer Grove will be available in the Kindle store. 

It is hard to believe that we have come this far this quickly and I am ecstatic to see what lies in store for us over the next year.
