The difference between inside and outside can be surprisingly small. Outside my window right now is dirt, wind and pouring rain. Meanwhile inside it is a cozy 65 degrees, and my computer, iPod and guitars are at no threat from the elements. This difference is due to less than two feet of wall and fiberglass.
In an unassuming shopping center in Edmonds, this same thickness of wall separates families enjoying pizza dinners and gym-goers from shelves lined with varieties of medical marijuana, its pungent smell shielded by a thick door.
Sometimes these barriers are made of other material. Plastic surgery allows people to bypass the wall of skin and change their appearance on the outside to what they feel on the inside. And in one Klipsun reporter's experience, this can prove to be life changing.
Often the simple barrier separating what s inside from out has the power to change the people who cross it. The patrons of the Bellingham Academy of Self Defense, for example, routinely leave behind their daily lives and step inside to study the ancient art of Karate, allowing them the focus to reflect on their lives outside.
This issue of Klipsun examines the many different meanings and interpretations of“inside/outside,” and keeping with the spirit of the theme, I hope you will enjoy reading what s inside these pages as much as we enjoyed making it.
