The good people at Kinfolk Magazine have once again outdone themselves with their newest issue, which focuses on the traditions and craftsmanship of Japan. I am proud to have contributed an essay called The View From Above about the connections between travel, discovery, and creativity.
"We have no choice but to live at street level—the time and place of our individual intersection with history and circumstance. But from above, from the perspective of balconies and towers and tall tree branches, that’s where we can see best—where we can catch glimpses of the boulevards that connect us with the wayfarers of the past and those that will someday discover our stories in rainy morning bookshops."
I hope you will find a copy somewhere or order one here today. Happy Summer everyone and happy reading!
