What Lies Beneath
That Twitter quote the other week made me look twice. I told Milla I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. She retorted, 'Cry, obviously. The situation is dire.' I agreed with the sentiment, but went on to explain that I didn't mean the praiseworthy thought that vigilance against evil is important. I meant that the User had mentioned a very real threat in the same sentence as an example from popular fiction. Strange how potent these memes can be for deepening our understanding of the world.
No, indeed. We don't think mass murder starts like a zombie attack. But we do not shrink from talking about either. Or both. Let no one on this planet mistake our playful creativity on this site for a lack of serious commitment to the betterment of our planet. Look in these pages, and you will see humour, and snark, and surprising insight in our collective observations. Open your minds and hearts, and let the truth breathe, is all we're asking.
That, and send us your photos, stories, and comments. There are plenty of opportunities for you to share.
Take the August Create. (We hope you will.) The Team would like to hear your grandparent stories. What mischief did your elders get up to? What tall tales and clever tricks did they pass on to you? We don't want to lose these things, that's why we ask. Send them in!
On to this week's issue. What's lurking here, besides that snake?
Lots to see and do, so why are you hanging around here? Get reading. And have a great week!
