Nightfall number eight. It feels crazy to write those words but we passed the one year mark last issue and now we are excited to dive in to our second year of providing a locally-focused platform for not only scathing critiques of all of the bullshit we face in our daily lives but also histories, instructional guides, potato jokes and more.
At times it has felt like we are punting our words into a void, but the warm feedback we have occasionally received here and there as well as the continued ramping up of the turbulence which originally inspired this project have made it clear that there is a place for a paper like this within a larger culture of resistance.
So here it is, number eight. It’s a little lighter than previous issues; what can we say other than that we’ve been busy? We’ve never desired to be journalists or writers above and outside of all of the other activities we find ourselves engaged in as we struggle to get free. Thinking and writing about struggles happening locally and globally is only worthwhile if it is a means towards deepening and refining our collective approach to life, and obviously to have anything worth writing about requires putting down pen and paper and stepping out into the world where new bonds can be formed and ideas can be put to the test.
We hope that in at least some small way this project has been helpful for those who desire more than the nightmare that this world offers us.
