Will freedom come – and cut my tether?
It’s time, it’s time! I bid her hail;
I roam the shore, await fair weather,
And beckon to each passing sail.
O when, my soul, with waves contesting,
And caped in storms, shall I go questing
Upon the crossroads of the sea?
It’s time to quit this dreary lee.
Issue #1 was a creative cluster bomb, bringing together seven photographers, three visual artists, two poets and four prose-merchants. It took many months to select, curate, arrange, design, arrange, re-arrange, and perfect each piece and each page. Many hours and many litres of coffee were consumed. By the end, it was the perfect showcase for sixteen wonderful artists whose every word, and every pencil line, and every colour tone, had been selected with love, care and intention. It was a celebration in print; a coming-together of the Misfit philosophy and the artistic urge.
