"The history of us--we're bound by an invisible, yet tangible thread. It dances across the ages, weaving itself into the spirals of our DNA. Traditions, heirlooms, and gently worn items passed down through the generations. How can a smell transport you right back to your childhood? Bringing up nostalgic emotions of times passing. Cracks in our foundation, filled with the mortar of our willingness to do better for our children. On the surface, it changed, it's evolved--buildings are taller, the pace of life is faster, but one fact remains the same. We are, who we are, because of those who've come before us. The ties that bind, though broken or built, weak or strong, old or new, woven or weaved, seep deep into the confines of our skin, leaving behind the most beautiful memories of life."
~In Issue Four we explore 'Heritage' and all the dimensions that the word encompasses.
"What greater thing is there for human souls than to feel that they are joined for life — to be with each other in silent unspeakable memories." ~George Eliot
