Un­der­stand­ing progress

We live in a so­ci­ety ob­sessed with in­no­va­tion and suc­cess, with look­ing for the next big thing as we lap up trend af­ter trend af­ter trend. Hap­pi­ness is now of­ten de­fined by what is “in.” But it does not hap­pen in a vac­uum. It con­stantly de­vel­ops, as things of the past shift and build on them­selves to make them bet­ter.

This is­sue is all about doc­u­ment­ing progress, change, and how look­ing back is just as im­por­tant as look­ing for­ward. Like some­thing as sim­ple as the food we cook and eat by choos­ing tra­di­tional grains and cook­ing tech­niques. We also see it in Elias founder Raoul Masang­cay’s re­turn to the lo­cal brew­ing scene af­ter years of ed­u­ca­tion and com­pe­ti­tions abroad. Ac­tress Andi Ei­gen­mann shares the same sen­ti­ment. Change, she says, “hap­pens ev­ery­where. It’s part of life… and if it will hap­pen, I might as well cre­ate that path of change for me… It’s scary, but I’m home and I’ll al­ways be happy.”
