|"Friends of Mother Nature" © Jim Warren|
Welcome to our Nature Issue! I am deeply grateful to all the talented folks who've poured their art, wisdom, words, and wonder into this special themed edition of IVJ. A warm thank you to the legendary artist Jim Warren for gracing our cover page with his beautiful painting "Friends of Mother Nature", and to the multi-talented editor Stacy Savage for honoring us with an interview and a poetry contest for a really great cause.
Indiana author Gene Stratton Porter once said, "Nature can be trusted to work her own miracle in the heart of any man whose daily task keeps him alone among her sights, sounds and silences." I believe that's true. Enjoy the wonder, and thank you to everyone who supports Indiana Voice Journal in one way or another. ~Janine Pickett
