a note from the editor

No

evidence is required in the mind of a surrealist,

because everything is possible.

When

we set our minds free from boundaries and

that which we are taught “makes sense”, we enter a land of endless colors, no rules and limitless combinations, where nothing “should” make sense, yet, all of it strangely does.

Unite

dream with reality.

Allow

the wall which is

reason to become a permeable membrane that our fragmented dreams float freely through and blend with reality.

It

is then that you will be surrounded

with limitless, colorful possibilities.

In this issue, themed the colorful mind of a surrealist, OPALUS engulfs you in pigment and juxtaposition with hopes to inspire and expand the color palletes of your mind.

How

many color palletes does your mind have?

Malorie Shmyr,

editor
