The September issue of the Open Roads newsletter is out on the road doing its job!

If you don’t have a copy at your house, here’s what you’re missing.

Publisher and editor, Becky Allen, blends the local history of Stuarts Draft, Virginia with the everyday wisdom and values of the people living on the land.

A guest article from Tama Kieves, author of “This Time I Dance,” raises the challenge of commitment, why some of us never do it, and what our life could look like if we did.

And yes, my article on “Six Mind, Body, Spirit Responses to Stress” is a gentle way of saying esoteric things in a mundane disguise.

I love the humor in the jokes and the pictures of log cabins. I read every word in Jimmy Olgers stories about his garden, his canning, his cooking. Makes me think I’m back in my Grandma’s house after a day out in her garden.

Rockfish Sanctuary, Inc. features skunks, raccoons and opossums this month in a splendid article by Samantha Masone. Since these critters are found in many other places across the states, this is great information for keeping yourself updated on rabies issues and what’s involved in rehabilitating injured wildlife.

No matter where you browse or pause to read in this homey newsletter, it brings you back to the essentials of life and the things you forget to be grateful for.

For your own copy, contact Becky Allen at and get on the Open Roads!
