Greetings to you,
Winter can be a complicated season, full of polarities. There is peace and chaos. There is cold weather and warm fires. There is silence and celebration. There is darkness and there is light. There are moments of joy and gratitude and times of isolation and sorrow. How can one month bring so much depth? The heart holds many chambers and feels so many things. Exploring and owning the vast spectrum of our emotional landscape can be exactly what we need to not only allow ourselves to feel but to also discover the light within. Morrissey once sang, “There is a light that never goes out.” This month through sharing images, words, poetry and an opportunity to look beyond ourselves and give to others collectively, we make way for that light to emerge and shine.
Join us this month by sharing your beautifully multifaceted heart with us; authentic, honest, real, true by using our theme hashtag #ourcollectiveheart (and our usual #ourcollective #shuttersisters & #thecameramen too when you see fit). We also encourage you to share what’s on your heart for a future issue of X : Our Collective Offering. We’re working on our 2015 editorial calendar and would love to see you on it. Visit our submissions page and send us your thoughts.
Here’s to being in this together,
