Storytelling. That's truly our mission with Lake Time Magazine - to go beyond. To make the connection, expand the boundaries of our individualistic pursuit of happiness, and shift reality. The more we promote, applaud, and actively inspire well-intended efforts, the more others will be drawn to them.
In that spirit, we urge you to take a cue from those who are, and have been, making waves - the adventurers, the activists, the makers, the doers, the dreamers... they're all right here in the pages of Lake Time Magazine. And, amazingly, in our neck of the woods. We love the idea of the unknown, and we celebrate those bold enough to explore.
