And I don't want to change your life
But there's a warm wind blowing, the stars are out…
We've been looking around. So have you, to judge from what gets thrown over the virtual transom. Kitkat sent this panorama from the farm. We're thankful. Somehow, our inability to get too close to each other these days makes us more alert to what we can see, hear, and perceive with our other senses, some of which may, or may not, be over the International Paranormalcy Line. You can judge for yourselves from what's in this issue. It's kind of amazing. We're bordering on the miraculous here, no lie.
I would urge you to give each and every photograph in this collection its due attention. Likewise the videos, of which there are several. Then read the features, essays, fiction, and poetry. And think: nobody in this mag is trying to sell anything. They don't want you to join a club1 or sign a petition or contribute to any fund. They just want to share the view from their window, garden, street, or mountain top.
They're not talking about moving in, and they don't want to change your life. You might, though – if you do, will you tell us about it? Confession: that song lyric is a mondegreen for me. I always heard, 'I'm not talkin' 'bout millennia…' and I thought it was a cool thing to say. So it goes.
Whatever they're talking about, please pay heed.
A word from Robbie Stamp: work on being a good ancestor. If they built a statue to you, would they sooner or later have to take it down? What would you rather leave behind to remember you than a bronze pigeon roost? Send us pics of your public art, and share your thoughts. And have a good week!
