TI Life in January '21 is now online

All I want right now is spring... I know it is only January, but the thought of returning to the River brings a smile. To help us get there we have over a dozen articles to let you escape from the news of the day.

As always, we thank our authors for sharing their words and images. I hope you enjoy this issue as much as we have in putting it together. Enjoy!
