"To live is not to survive a storm, rather it is to dance in the rain". Well, our journal, "Spanish Journal of Rural Development (SJRD)", has achieved not only dance and caper, with what´s been happening but we gradually overcoming, but surely, the "stones" that we have encountered in our short road yet. This number corresponds to the first of the fourth volume of SJRD and, considering that we have received more than 50 articles for review and possible publication in 2012, I trust that this year we will exceed that figure.
"The future has many names. For the weak it is unattainable. For the fearful, the unknown. For determined it is the opportunity" (Victor Hugo). The crises, even if it were persistent, are always transient, since there is no evil that lasts a hundred years. "Spanish Journal of Rural Development" continues its journey peacefully, and with a perceptible and sure objective, conquering new goals, in short, we are increasingly aware of that "the impossible is often the untried". Finally, tell you that in a few days we will have our new website operational, with a much more attractive and versatile design, also with the publication of Volume IV, we have changed the look of the cover of SJRD, but you do not think that I'll change how close these lines, because that is part of our own history. "I am Don Quijote, and my profession is knight-errant. My laws are to resolve wrongs, to lavish the good and to avoid evil. I flee of the easy life, ambition and hypocrisy, and I look for the more narrow and difficult path in order to my own glory. Is that, silly and fool?
