"The Nature of Things" is a Literary and Fine Arts Magazine produced by Lone Mountain Literary Society. We are a collective of artists and writers based out of San Francisco. In this, our second release (technically our first issue) of the magazine, we center our focus on the theme of, sacred spaces. We are very proud of the beautiful work from the writers and artists contained within. We are also extremely humbled and grateful for each and every submission to our collective. We take the upmost care in reading and reviewing every submission in our editorial process, and welcome artist and writers, new and established, to send work for future issue. We hope you love this issue as much as we loved putting it together! yrs, LMLS
At Lone Mountain Literary Society, we are acutely attuned to and fascinated by, the wonders of the natural world and the bizarre reality of existence itself. To exist, is to find oneself in space. The writer and the artist are inextricably entwined in the spaces that they occupy. It is impossible to separate the person from the environment. We absorb our environments through our senses, through the food we eat, and through the air we breathe. Our breath is like the rhythm of the ocean tide, infinitely lapping at the shoreline. With each breath, we become the environment, and in turn, the environment becomes us. Because of this, knowingly or unknowingly, the writer and the artist carry space within them; Their poems, stories, and works of art are the direct expressions of the spaces they carry. In this way, space breathes life into them. With this issue of, The Nature of Things, we seek to discover, ponder, illuminate, and illustrate the theme of sacred spaces. Each page, a space in its own rite. Each page, a portal to a distant place. We invite you, reader, to discover with us, and to participate in the eternal connective rhythm of the cosmic breath.
About the author
Lone Mountain Literary Society is a collective of writers, editors, and artists based out of San Francisco, California. We are chiefly interested in topics of reflection and the mysteriousness of metamorphosis in our storytelling and visual art. We love a bristling voice, beautiful craft, and writing that bends the philosophical mind and stirs emotions. As a platform, we seek to uncover the weird, the dark, the experimental, and new work from all writers and artists! In addition, we delight whenever we get the opportunity to work collaboratively with our contributors.
