When I read our cover story in this issue for the Travelwise column, I was excited for its message in several ways: it features exploring public art on our travels to expand our cultural understanding, it reminds us to slow down in life and smell the roses, which we all need to do, and it reminded me that there will be time to explore public art in Denver for the January 2024 QRCA Annual Conference.

So, a friend who is obsessed with gardening is helping us visualize some problem areas outside to provide us with a renewed sense of surroundings for our home. She doesn’t just plant and enjoy.
