Welcome to the magazine
Suddenly I was there, sitting, just sitting, very still. Such a silence. Time stopped. And light descending, enveloping all .... then it said in me “I wonder if anyone else is feeling this?” And so it ended.
Sometimes in childhood, in adolescence or in difficult circumstances, there are moments of wonder, the experience of simply being alive. But we can't stay like that for long; the demands of life draw us in a different direction, towards interests and preoccupations and ‘making a living’. It seems as though those moments of wonder came from another world, far distant from “real life”. But that world is surely still there – and perhaps sometimes we find it again for brief moments.
So which of these worlds is our true home? Or is that the wrong question? Perhaps there could be a view which includes both, rejecting neither. In this magazine we welcome contributions that try to convey an inner questioning and give a view from ‘in-between’.
