The editors have been hard at work over the last couple of months on borrowed solace 2.1! We have been dreaming of spring in the midst of blizzards and polar vortexes, and creating a journal full of amiable sun rays and balmy breezes.
The journey to get here has been quite a trek, but it has been a rewarding one. The spring journal holds a special place in all of our hearts because it’s always about new beginnings – it’s the first journal of the year and one that reeks of promise.
One of the reasons that I am so enthused about the spring journal is that it is our un-themed edition. While our themed editions are always enticing to put together, the un-themed journals are secretly my favorite (I guess it’s not a secret anymore!)
The thing I love about writing is that it has no bounds – writing can be used as a fabulous tool, but unlike a literal tool, it has many purposes. The un-themed journals take full advantage of the boundlessness of the written word. It truly allows for experimentation and the beauty that comes from the unexpected.
So, as you, dear reader, eagerly anticipate spring borrowed solace, prepare yourself to be surprised, delighted, and otherwise galvanized. For writing, and spring borrowed solace, are about just those things!
