We’re living well ... Exactly! Throughout the course of

its existence, LivingWellmag- azine hasbeena resilient, albeit evolving, publication. Thecase certainly canbe

madethat it oncewasamaga- zine with a focusonwomen. Noproblemwith that, just stating the obvious. Therewasa periodwhen

the magazinemorphedmore toward health careandactive, healthy choices for readers. I personally love that concept, but inmeasuredform. Themagazine has at times

flavoredanoutdoors appeal, andat othersbeenTwin Lakes Area-centric, then shot off the mapto a regional feel. Today, I’m tellingyouex-

actlywhatLivingWellmaga- zine is,andisn’t—or at least myvision,whichplays out perfectly in this issue. LivingWell isn’t just for

women,thoughanyviable mediaresearch will indicate this type of publication cer- tainly appealsmoreto females than males. It also isn’t a platform for areamed- ical providers or organiza- tions,andits pages are ded- icated not only to Baxterand Marioncounties. Doweacknowledge all of

those aspects? Absolutely. Everyissue begins in our backyardandthen expands. So, to the point,whatis

LivingWell in the eyes of the editor? Exactly.Huh? Thevision iswhywe’re

living well in this picturesque, sometimesunusualandal- wayscaptivating part of the countryknownas the Ozarks. It’swhyIcamehere to
