Hello. Greetings. Welcome. I am Cody Schultz, the editor of Nature Vision Magazine, and this is Dodge & Burn, a monthly digest where we mix storytelling with philosophy in hopes of better understanding the creative life. These musings will tackle a range of topics, from the more literal (such as the power of community in a (dis)connected world) to the figurative (the power of time and its role in our lives). It is my hope that, through these essays, there may be had a better understanding of what it means to live as an artist in the modern age.
