As winter extends its icy hold, I often think about life and the journey that lies ahead. There’s something about the frosty mornings and endless grey light that lends itself to self-reflection. If you, like me, find yourself diving into an internal dialogue, you may discover you have an idea of where you want to go, but are caught without a roadmap. Along this path of life, there will be times of uncertainty. Of narrow alleyways you have to pass through in order to get where you’re wanting to go – of passage. But it’s the choices we make during these moments that hold potential to transform us into the person we want to be. This quarter, Klipsun writers have sought to capture this idea through various interpretations. They’ve crafted narratives about the passage of time, the passage to safety or of passage in its literal form - transportation. Allow these compelling stories to move you, the photography inspire you, but most of all, I hope this magazine makes you feel like you have a place in this cosmic universe. Be brave enough to cross through your passage.
