Welcome to the November 2016 Enlivening Edge Magazine Highlights!



The morning of waking up to a Trump/Brexit era shocked me, like many others in the progressive camp, into awareness of our own blissful ignorance about just how much pain and anger there is among the underprivileged multitudes. It also served as a good reminder why we want to enliven the edge of evolution, in the first place.

You will find more about that in my Editorial, here.
