With the sun out and the flowers in bloom, our eyes often seem to be wide open. But spring is the season for letting our minds wander.

In this issue of InTheFray, we take a look at some of the places to which our wits venture. We begin with our trip to A desert of dreams, where ITF Contributing Writer Penny Newbury learns about the Burning Man festival and the ups and downs of an anarchist tradition in her review of Brian Doherty’s This is Burning Man. We then turn to Happy little poem, Miles J. Bell’s take on a factory worker’s longing for “a long lie down.”

Finally, if you haven’t done so lately, we invite you to check out our blogs, which are now in full bloom.

Thanks for reading!
