issue 5: home
issue 5: home
In our fifth issue, we welcome you into the most intimate spaces we know—our homes.
Rooted in the physical, emotional, and spiritual, home is a relationship we share with the spaces that hold us. It’s in the cracks of the floorboards and the soil beneath the apple tree. Home sees laughter, joy, tears, grief, change, and growth. It embraces us as we unravel, and continues to do so as we stitch ourselves back up.
In these pages, our contributing artists explore home beyond the physical. They bring you from the deserts of Arizona, to the forests of coastal British Columbia, to the saltwater of the Pacific. They paint windows of their home and invite you to look from inside out. they tell of spaces past and present, old selves and new, fragments of memories, and forever homes in our bodies.
