We were right in the middle of our work for this issue when the world shut down and our lives changed, possibly forever. We paused for a while and reassessed, more
we readjusted and continued on, but not without challenges. Besides the obvious physical and mental difficulties of working in isolation on a print publication, keeping focus and high spirits whilst the world is in deep despair and extreme sadness is a tall order, yet our artists, contributors and friends soldiered on to make it possible. Thank you all for your courage and support. The world is left with more questions than answers, but in time?if we really pay attention?we can heal and be better than before. We owe it to all who have left us so abruptly and tragically, and to those who have put their own lives at risk for us. The planet is giving us a shake down, albeit a cruel one, and time to pause. Society wants us all to focus on maximum productivity ? often to the detriment of creativity, sustainability and craftsmanship ? but does this not limit our experience of what the world truly has to offer? Together, we can reinvent the world, from this Dystopia we can try to create some amount of Utopia.
