Weighty truths can come from humor; knowledge from fools; and that very act of play is an act of wisdom. In this issue, we pause and look closer, asking questions like, “What if I were a Lodgepole pine?” and consider the architecture of humor, the weight of a heavy anti-superhero.
All of these contributors, and indeed, our own human experiences, invite us to engage in jest—in writing a poem, in dreaming up a character, or practicing laughter. If we accept this invitation, we are granted a perspective that is humble with its childlike openness and can reveal the colors, bumps, and contours of the life that He gives us.
