BluePrintReview in/stances: here is the now



Today, the final set of reflections on moments went online at BluePrintReview, completing the "in/stances" issue. Here's an overview of the complete issue, from the archive page:

Here is the now
The final page that went live is "here is the now" - a collage that formed on the Mindful Writing Day. This collage partly inspired the instances issue, it includes images and words by Karyn Eisler, Cathrine Lødøen, Stella Pierides, Jean Morris, Nicolette Wong, Jim Wittenberg and Steve Veilleux. So the ending point now really is one of the beginning points. 

It's exciting to see how this issue turned out – I more or less put the pages together in the order they arrived here, and it's wonderful to see the variety of works - each series of instances forms an own, vivid kaleidoscope, exploring and documenting multiple layers and angles of the world.

And like so often, cross-connections started to form in the issue, and some works almost look like they inspired each other, even though there was no further theme apart from "moments" / "instances", and of course none of the contributors knew about the others, and the images / themes they sent. Yet still there now is almost a net of parallels.

Enjoy the moments and the unexpected parallels and counterparts ~

In a luminous song...

There's the
light of a
fine day in
a luminous
song, there's
a beautiful
sadness and
a tender desire.
