Spell For October
from your editors and publishers
Be patient with the days for getting shorter.
Be patient with yourself.
Write spells for protection from microaggressions
and street harassment and flu germs on public transit.
Take time outs from work and school and worrying.
Take time away to dream.
Remember that doing work isn’t the same
as being useful, and vice versa: doing nothing
is sometimes the best thing you can do.
Consider that what’s in the way
might be the way.
And remember what Sarah Schulman said:
whatever people do, they do it because they think
it is going to make their lives better.
Happy October, friends, and we'll see you at our October 21st Launch Party!
