By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut.
