Letter from the Editors Every year, the season of spring brings about a thrill of excitement. As the snow melts away, flowers begin to bloom, and animals rouse out of hibernation, a sense of possibility fills our world. Now is the perfect time to chase dreams, take chances, and follow unpaved roads. That is why the theme of “Wild & Free” is all about living life, fashion, and art on the edge. From our editor’s breathtaking encounters with Africa’s big cats, to unique fashion sculptures and designs captured around the world, this issue embodies free spirit and novel ventures in both the natural and urban environment. With this theme, we hope to inspire you to live out your own dreams. Go ahead and take a fashion risk or embark on that trip you’ve been planning for years! Our June issue’s theme is “The Great Escape”, just in time for the start of the summer holidays! We will be releasing the rest of the year’s themes in a few weeks, so stay tuned!

FICTION

The Gentle Wild By Jacqueline Shea She often looks upon the stars. She wonders. She dreams. She never knew love - the kind that lasts forever. She has been alone. She used to be sad, but she finds that the solitude allowed her to be who she wanted to be. She never met anyone who was the same. You see, she is different. She has an otherness to her that keeps everyone rendered in her presence. Sure, they think they know her. Assumptions. Her imagination, creativity, and longing for grandeur taunt as a curse, for her expressions of such things are hidden beneath her eyelashes. She is afraid to be tamed, to be restricted to a way of life that does not stimulate the senses to the point of losing oneself in a moment. She refuses boredom. She strives for intellect and understanding. She wishes to not just find someone to share the things she loves, but the way she loves them. She is wild. Her wildness lies within. The gentle kind of wild. The wildness she possesses mimics that of nature. Raw, organic, uninhibited. Her spirit reflects the elements as it dances carefree like the wind. Bathed and cleansed like the purest of water, it enriches other living beings like the deep dark earth, and is unabashedly in flame, awakening the life like that of a natural, phenomenal forest fire. She knows of ebbs and flows. She knows that the sun and moon play a game of never-ending hide and seek. She appreciates the smallest of things, like the hard work of the busy bee. Her character knows resilience like a wildflower fighting and longing in the change of seasons, slowly dying and coming back to life. She will make you come alive. She will reach into your core and wrench your soul the same way you see the beauty of dusk and all the possibilities that will come with the colourful rays reaching out to you. She does not boast, she does not shout out loud. She has a silent, strong confidence like that of a long standing tree that has weathered years and still stands tall. She will thrill you by the touch of her skin and lips. She will excite your mind to wonder about these great and beautiful things. She will teach you innocence and to trust your instinct as she has learned from the many species of animals that she admires. Survival. Her voice is like a songbird, calling out in the stillness to move you. She will challenge you like the terrains of a majestic mountain. She is imperfect, but pristine. She is damaged, but whole. She is wild.

Jacqueline Shea is a recent graduate of the Adult Education and Community Development program at Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. She believes in the power of producing knowledge through art and creative expression with the use of emotion, embodiment, and reflection of transformative experiences. She considers herself a lover of wildlife, wildflowers, and the wildness of the spirit. 48 | VEUX | ISSUE 29 | WILD & FREE
