Today at the Spectrum office we received a delivery. It was a small box from the printer with the physical copies of the latest issue of the journal. At first, we excitedly flipped through the pages and commented on the colorful photos and beloved authors’ names. Then a brief sadness fell over Linda, Bonnie, and me. We had all suddenly realized it was Bonnie’s last issue as editor. An hour earlier Bonnie had been inspiring me with how providentially the journal had come together—once again—with an eclectic, yet harmonious, blend of authors, articles, and art. I could tell that over her more than two decades editing the journal it’s not just been a creative endeavor but an act of love, a gift to all our friends in the Spectrum community.
