this month has taught me how much I rely on public libraries. they are beautiful places, but now they are closed. at least, they’re closed in new mexico, where we’ve been living recently.
we don’t have solar panels, at least nothing large enough to charge a computer. i’ve got written pages needing to be scanned, a website needing to be updated, things needing electricity and a spout of internet. wifi is easy to come by, but electricity has proven harder. always, no power.
this is a zine about grit, of course, so another plan has been hatched. a detour, perhaps. the scenic route.
in any case, issue two exists — on paper, in the van. soon enough, it should exist as a zine, scanned-assembled-printed, ready to be shared.
we are never powerless.
