Issue # 9 Myth, Magic, & Ritual

Mar 18, 2009

Buy issue # 9

The lines on the cover are excerpted from the essay by Jenny Boully, found
in the first pages of this issue. They suggest that the act of naming, of
pointing out, is an act of simultaneous creation and destruction; that our
conjuring irrevocably alters that which we conjure. Her essay is rooted in a
world of symbology that seeks to interpret the invisible forces acting upon
our lives. Myths, magic, and rituals are just a few of the tools we use in our
pursuit of these forces, and in our defense against them.
