'When did I last know who I am?I wonder if it when I was a child,when I made up stories from my imagination.'

'When did I last know who I am?
I wonder if it when I was a child,
when I made up stories
from my imagination.'

Who Am I

When did I last know who I am?
I wonder if it when I was a child,
when I made up stories
from my imagination.
Was I separate then
from the imaginary children
with imaginary parents
and imaginary friends.
knowing
where my story began
and where I ended.
I don’t remember.

Perhaps the story ended before I began.
Perhaps the two began together.
Perhaps they may end together,
separately
or eternally
entwined,
inseparable.
I cannot say.
I never could.

Did I ever know who I am?

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.
