Here’s the cover:
You can look through the entire issue, which hopes “To look out, To let light in.” Editors Matthew Sage and Grant Sounder have compiled a lovely arrangement of art & poetry meditating on the natural world, the passing of time, and the interaction between the human-constructed world and earth’s processes–to name but three of the many possible avenues of thought found in these works. There’s an open-endedness to many of these works that offers, as the publication title suggests, a window into possible worlds of experience, thought, and behavior. Permanence, decay, and the life cycles of being take a contemplative position wherein viewers and readers can let their mind drift as we think about both the large and the small (and if there’s much of a difference). As Thomas B. Ostachof’s lovely poem “Weather Weather Weather. Much Better” offers :
“We’re still / burning while here. Or there. Where?”
The works herein are many places, burning with their own special messages, if we have ears to hear and eyes to see.
Finally, I’m grateful to have one of my own photos included in this issue among other fine artists. My thanks to Matthew and Grant. My praise to the other contributors.
