LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

N eed a little pampering? Where gifted hands massage, steam, or exfoliate those demons of stress and irritation? The time has come to go to the professionals!

If twentysomethings are united on anything, it may well be the search for affordable housewares and home furnishings. For those who have left behind the Salvation Army decorating phase but are not able to spend thousands, the pickings have been slim.

"The Art of William Edmondson" is a major retrospective of an artist whose name few people will recognize, a sculptor who sophisticated creations belie his humble lifestyle.

Plus, driving in the mountains, the "slow food" movement, the sport of curling, and more.
