Folklife Magazine Volume 4 is available now on loremnotipsum.com. In this fourth volume of FOLKLIFE (the Mother Issue), we hear stories from those who are mothers, who have mothers, who changed as mothers, who wove traditions as mothers, and who used not much more than matchsticks, as mothers. We journey to the later years of life with memory of mothers and their passing, and we find our mother in the world around us. Mother, here, now, always. As we recognize how we have been sustained and nurtured, perhaps we can be inspired to practice a reverence for our essential mother, the earth, in this pandemic world . . . for she is what will bring us back to life. (And chock-full of so much more. We think you’re going to love it.)
Filled with our trademark love and warmth, this captivating read is about the the restless dreamers. Step inside and be transported to islands of intrigue and inspiration. Fed by ocean, forest, farm, and sky, this is a world in which limits have been swept aside and dreams have taken root. Here, the land grows lighter and the full spectrum of colour re-emerges after so much darkness. We’ve survived another winter and finally have a moment to stop and smell the flowers. Be here, now, with us.
Folklife Magazine Volume 4 is themed Mother. Cover photo was shot by Stasia Garraway featuring Nick North. “Motherhood was as close as I ever got to making being assigned female at birth work.”
