spring is the season of inspiration. After a freezing cold winter, much of it spent indoors, we now feel rejuvenated and motivated to get organized, get in shape, and get outdoors. Even though I like to walk along the Brook Path and ride my bike all year long, it's much more pleasant and more fun to do so on a beautiful spring day. The people I met on the pages of this issue are truly inspirational, and they motivate me like good weather to try something new, be adventurous, and enjoy fresh air and nature like never before. Cycling is one of my favorite things to do, and a cross-country trip has always been on my bucket list. After reading about Glen, Earl, and Tucker and their journey along Route 66 from Boston to San Diego, a major bike trip has moved up to the top of my list. I can't think of a better way to see the country, meet interesting people, get into top physical shape, achieve an ambitious goal, and raise money for a worthwhile cause. If nothing else, the article inspires me to start training for some amazing rides this spring and summer. One doesn't need to travel far, however, to have an adventure. I visited Jamaica Plain years ago, but I never really spent any time there until about a month ago when I visited to take photos for our "Excursions" article. The day I spent there was like a mini vacation: visiting historic landmarks, trying new restaurants, shopping at trendy shops, and experiencing great people watching. It was a quick but rewarding getaway, and I hope to get back to JP this spring and summer when the weather is warmer and more conducive to being outdoors. There are so many restaurants to try and shops to visit. For many, getting back into the garden is another favorite springtime activity, and the green thumbs you'll meet in our "Master Gardeners" article undoubtedly spend a lot of time with their hands in dirt and have gor- geous gardens at their homes. But they also assist the rest of us by volunteering at horticultural sites, staffing gardening help lines, and providing educational talks to enlighten those of us who could use help in making our gardens grow. In our "Education" article, you'll learn how our young people are also learning about the environment and nature through a revamped environmental education initiative in the public schools. Whether it's improving your gardening skills, trying a new sport, achieving a lofty goal, or simply enjoying the nice weather, I know you'll find provide plenty of inspiration on the pages of our spring issue.
