It’s funny how much we notice change happening around us, but the shifts in ourselves seem to take longer for us to feel. We catch ourselves doing things differently, only recognizing in hindsight that along with everything else, we’ve grown, too. How do we know when we’ve turned a page; started a new chapter; hell, are in a new book entirely? In Issue 17, we explore how we adjust to fit into and around the world, how we adjust our worlds to fit around us, and what we learn along the way.
A road-trip proving that no matter where you go, there you are. A full-circle moment of shaving with grandpa. A journey into motherhood that isn’t exactly as expected. A look at one’s reflection and the things we tell ourselves. Find these stories, and many more, in Issue 17: Growth.
