Letter From the Editor

Dear reader,

Not knowing can be scary. It brings us the insecurity of uncertainty and how much we have yet to discover. Either by pride, fear or curiosity, something that is unknown can be terrifying. It leaves us vulnerable to the future, to the ‘mights’, ‘coulds’ and ‘mays’ in life. However, it is evident that there is a lot we don’t know about in the world. “Science or religion explains it all!” Well… except they don’t. Even these two contain great unknowns, questions that remain unanswered, elements about life and death that they are still unsure about.

Some use this uncertainty to entice creativity.

Unpredictability, apparently, can liberate something quite unique, something primordial, a reflex, a thoughtless impulse that comes from your natural being. It can reveal who you truly are, what you truly feel (can it? – it remains unknown) and find new ways of expression.

Now, I want to leave this note very short so I don’t give away too much for you to know. All I want, really, is for you to be brave enough to face the unknown and discover and explore. Open that article by this not-yet-known author, read about a topic that you don’t have much knowledge on, admit that you don’t know how to answer a question and let go of the need to know it at all.

Welcome to our beginning
Giulia Cristofoli
