Issue 10: Reverie

Good art gives us the chance to ponder, muse, and meditate, or sometimes, even become lost in reverie. In this issue, our contributors usher us into these moments of contemplation, suspension, and melancholy in gardens and county fairs, wintry meadows and dark-lit stages. Although this may not be the tidiest process, it allows for freedom, wandering, and soul-searching. 

Our contributors offer us the opportunity to have these moments of stillness and even worship, which each of us need and even crave. And this, they remind us, in and of itself, is worth seeking.
