“Orion,” according to the Boston Globe, “is America’s finest environmental magazine.” In 2010 Orion again won the Utne Independent Press Award for General Excellence, and was a finalist for a National Magazine Award in the Essay category.
“Orion’s mission is to inform, inspire, and engage individuals and grassroots organizations in becoming a significant cultural force for healing nature and community.” Orion also understands that “cultural transformation cannot happen without personal transformation.” (Although, I would add that transformation and change is not as linear as this suggests—there is still mystery here.)
Why do I tell you all this? Well, because Orion is an advertising free, beautifully crafted, literary magazine devoted to bringing people and nature closer together—and therefore dedicated to bringing people closer together with people—and so worthy of support. This year, Orion is also celebrating its 30th anniversary. And at the bottom of the list is the happy fact that I had a small piece published in the January/February edition.
