In a world that capitalizes on minutes, even mere seconds, Pause urges its readers to stop for a moment to reflect on how we affect time and how time affects us. Tailored to the multimedia and technically savvy generations who are all kinds of busy, Pause gives time a fresh look through in-depth features, service pieces, personal essays, and columns both in print and online. Our goal is that once a reader puts down Pause or closes it’s web page, they walk away with a new take on time.

Editor’s Note.
