LETTERS FROM THE EDITORS
BRIAN SHIELDS Over the past few years I have been to hell and back; I could show you the vouchers. After a series of events that really opened my eyes, I knew it was time for a fresh start. So, like the pioneers of old, I headed west and landed here in Boise, Idaho. I didn’t know what to expect, but within a week I quickly realized that I had made one of the best decisions in my life. The city welcomed me with open arms and I set out to take in the culture, customs and ways of Boise. I wanted to know what was hot in the city, where to go, what to do, what to wear. I would get bits and pieces of info from various sources but there wasn’t a centralized location for me to go and find the information I was after. Furthermore, I found that many Boise natives had never even heard of several of the cool places I discovered. That’s how Fusion Magazine was born. So here it is, Boise - this is my way of saying thank you for the fresh start you have given me. This magazine is a culmination of my past experiences as well as the experience and knowledge I am gaining as I try to navigate my way through your wonderful city. Hopefully, I can do my part in helping the city find its swagger and reach its potential by introducing the Fusion lifestyle. So here we go, I hope you enjoy it.
