The Tower represents moments of us being shattered by what is familiar. These moments represent the inevitable reality clawing us and ultimately shedding the truth we've set for ourselves. Although intimidating, the setbacks that this brings do not leave us desolate, but it allows us to be refreshed and brought with an opportunity to be renewed and rebuilt for the better.

Issue 19: The Tower brings you stories of nostalgia, unlearning, and rebuilding all still in the forms of arts, literature, and other oddities.

"But I'm not sorry that I can't always be her, your exciting lover,
there are times, I become the asbestos of my house,
tolerating the fires of my father’s addiction
from turning my home into stumps of sober ash."—Joanna George, I'm Sorry, Issue 18: Convalescence

Convalescence deals with the time one has spent in recuperation. It eases the unpleasant experiences and allows the flesh to mend the wounds. A remarkable experience and a gradual reinforcement of the mind, body, and soul.

New Reader Magazine continues the year 2022 with stories of hurting, healing, and recovery.

Issue 11, Vol. 3 "Hiding in Plain Sight"

The other day, I met—well, not really, I just saw one of his videos—Johann Hari. He wrote a book called Lost Connections, where he uncovers causes of depression and anxiety. He points out that in the early stages of mankind, humans were able to survive and thrive in the wilderness, not because they were any bigger or any smarter than all the other animals, but because humans were good at working together and communicating with one another as a tribe.

Now I won’t say that this generation isn’t constantly communicating with one another—I mean, we can even be obsessed with it! I just think that it’s easy to miss out on opportunities or decline human connection because of so many distractions from streaming sites, social media, video games, etc. I’m not saying they’re bad because I’m always grateful for it. Without these inventions I wouldn’t be able to reach the artists I’ve talked to or the talented contributors, and well—you! This online publication brings us closer, and makes us grow familiar with each other even without meeting in person.

I think that’s what this quarter is all about—the things we miss out on all the time, but always had right in front of us. I must say that this quarter was fun to make. It was a bit longer, and the process was more patient compared to the others we’ve had. It took its time, and took a lot of effort in listening and observing, carefully trying its best to get a message across.

And alas, the message is here, so thank you for being our dear reader.

April 23 — SHAKESPEARE DAY
Enjoy the day in the best possible way — by watching his popular plays, talking like his characters, and even trying to dress in attire from that era!

A Fairy Song by William Shakespeare

Over hill, over dale,
Thorough bush, thorough brier,
Over park, over pale,
Thorough flood, thorough fire!
I do wander everywhere,
Swifter than the moon's sphere;
And I serve the Fairy Queen,
To dew her orbs upon the green;
The cowslips tall her pensioners be;
In their gold coats spots you see;
Those be rubies, fairy favours;
In those freckles live their savours;
I must go seek some dewdrops here,
And hang a pearl in every cowslip's ear.

A Light exists in Spring
Not present on the Year
At any other period –
When March is scarcely here.

A Color stands abroad
On Solitary Fields
That Science cannot overtake
But Human Nature feels.

It waits upon the Lawn,
It shows the furthest Tree
Upon the furthest Slope you know
It almost speaks to you.

Then as Horizons step
Or Noons report away
Without the Formula of sound
It passes and we stay –

A quality of loss
Affecting our Content
As Trade had suddenly encroached
Upon a Sacrament. — A Light Exists in Spring by Emily Dickinson

‘Spring‘ by William Blake — in Songs of Innocence in 1789

Sound the flute!
Now it’s mute!
Bird’s delight,
Day and night,
Nightingale,
In the dale,
Lark in sky,—
Merrily,
Merrily merrily, to welcome in the year.

Little boy,
Full of joy;
Little girl,
Sweet and small;
C**k does crow,
So do you;
Merry voice,
Infant noise;
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.

Little lamb,
Here I am;
Come and lick
My white neck;
Let me pull
Your soft wool;
Let me kiss
Your soft face;
Merrily, merrily, to welcome in the year.

April 17 — International Haiku Poetry Day
Create your own Haiku to celebrate today's event!

In the moonlight’ by Yosa Buson
In the moonlight,
The color and scent of the wisteria
Seems far away.

‘Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry Now’ by A. E. Housman

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.

Now, of my threescore years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.

And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.
