f this zine was a teenager, 15 would be the time of questioning rules, of reading forbidden books, of gazing into the mirror, wondering about the shapes of life. seen like that, it perfectly fits that the issue starts with a formula to solve the oblique, then steps into a desert, into an old house, into a green mood, to turn into a dream - and return into another world, as a star abandoned, folding and unfolding on, shaping and reshaping.

a curiosity of this issue: it comes with a number of unplanned pairings. there are 2 house poems, 2 café stories, 2 afternoon scenes, 2 authors from the Philippines, 2 from Canada. plus, almost all visual artists contributed 2 images. and there are 2 additional links this time  news. and: more than 1. which could be the subtitle of the issue itself.

enjoy the shapes of life!
