Grand Valley’s array of abundance

By Debra Dobbins

When one considers the climate, lifestyles and literary history of the Grand Valley, “prolific” seems an apt word to use in connection with it.

The Online Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary gives three definitions for the word: 1 producing young or fruit especially freely (Ed. note: Pass those peaches! Even in 2013, reportedly a “bad” year, I’ve savored quite a few.) 2 archaic causing abundant growth, generation, or reproduction (Ed. note: Is it just me, or does anyone else think the valley’s cultural and outdoor recreational offerings have blossomed in the past decade?) and 3 marked by abundant inventiveness or productivity.... (Ed. note: Dalton Trumbo, no matter whether you love him or hate him, certainly knew how to knock out those screenplays….)
