    Sanctuary – Camille T. Dungy

    Acclaimed poet Camille T. Dungy bears witness to an encounter between a man and an elephant. In an effort to make sense of a world in which so much has been lost, this poem offers us the opportunity to step into a moment where past harm gives way to an expansive recognition of love.

    To See Beyond: A Hoping in Three Pictures – Anna Badkhen

    In this narrated essay, writer and journalist Anna Badkhen brings us into histories of imperial collapse.

    Noiseless Messengers – Rebecca Giggs

    Noiseless Messengers – Rebecca Giggs

    This month we move from Initiation into Ashes with five stories from Chapter Two. When so much has been stripped away, how do we bear witness to ruin? How do we continue to be present with that which remains? We begin with the sudden disappearance of the bogong moth in alpine Australia. As writer Rebecca Giggs traces the moths journey from superabundance to apocalypse, she considers how very small beings are often responsible for vast surges of life.

    Living with the Unknown Soundtrack – Volker Bertelmann

    Living with the Unknown Soundtrack – Volker Bertelmann

    We invited Oscar-nominated composer Volker Bertelmann, also known as Hauschka, to create a unique companion to the stories in our third volume, Living with the Unknown. The resulting four-part score is a cinematic and introspective experience, and a compelling counterpart for the journey into the unknown. 
    When we first spoke to Volker about the issue’s themes—Initiation, Ashes, Roots, and Futures—he said he felt like they were describing a life circle and the course of creativity. Deep crises and collapses, he said, are necessary steps in evolution. His score evokes this circle, taking the listener through the questions about transformation that we’re exploring in this issue—and more broadly as a magazine. 
    This week, we’re excited to share the soundtrack of Living with the Unknown. Sit back and enjoy this contemplative sonic experience.

Overlooking Orford Ness ,

Science at its best

In UK we keep hearing how the government response is science led...if only they had listened much earlier and really understood. I too build have built hope that this crisis does not go to waste. Excellent i/v thanks.

Wonderful content

Love this overall. I find the tone of the guy reading a bit too sincere / overplayed though. The words speak for themselves, they don’t need to be wrung out in my view…
