Editor’s Letter

How to breathe free in an expired world? All around, people struggle to find alternatives for a better life. Adapt, create, be true, don’t lie, don’t fake. Smile, make love, make money, be happy. Run in the woods, track towards a personal truth. Work. Excavate a hole, and like the song says,

I wish I was a mole in the ground
Yes I wish I was a mole in the ground
If I’s a mole in the ground
I’d root that mountain down
And I wish I was a mole in the ground

Oh no but You, I, are not a mole. Face reality girl. You’re a woman. Hell yes that’s right and so proud to be!

Hey woman —sparkled with love— carry on the projections of your imagination, stand up and shout, even when night falls!
