the 5th Edition

MARCH 25th-26th, 2022

“Don’t think about it. Just breathe.
Somewhere on the other side of the world, it is spring. Somewhere, fresh blades of grass are breaking through the cold crust of the earth and the streams are running full as the last of the snow melts. Somewhere on the other side of the world, your room is waiting for you. Somewhere on the other side of the world, your parents buried an empty box. No. Think of something else.”
― Lisa Henry, The Island
