You never know who you’re going to meet when you’re traveling. It’s so fun to meet people at various pond events and connect with them. I’ve chatted with people at the Water Garden Expo, Pondemonium, Atlantic-OASE conferences, and regional koi shows around the country, and they often share a topic with me that they would like to write an article about for the magazine. It’s one of the best parts of this gig!

Case in point, I recently connected with Shaun Lindley of Lindley Stone. Shaun and his wife Amy were my next-door boothmates at the Water Garden Expo this past March. He blew me away with his enthusiasm and knowledge of rocks. One thing led to another, and now one of this beautiful boulders is gracing the cover of this magazine. Please be sure to read his story about the business of excavating and selling stones. I think he rocked it!

As far as the rest of the issue is concerned, there is a powerful theme that overlaps several articles — the greater meaning behind building waterscapes and how it affects the lives of others. Dean Pipito compiled a touching collection of client stories that will inspire you to build for the greater good. Alan Weene also wrote a fascinating piece about the interconnectedness between human beings and aquatic environments. Thanks, Dean and Alan, for sharing your important perspectives with our readers.

On a less solemn note, I really got a kick out of Jake Bradley‘s stories about building water features for exotic animals like ostriches and tigers. You also won’t want to miss Taro Kodama‘s Language of Koi feature about way-cool-looking Golden Corn koi .

So, the next time you see me out and about, please stop and chat! I’d love to hear what you’d like to read (or write) about for the magazine. You readers are truly the heart and soul of this publication!

Happy PONDering!
