Time it was, and what a time it was, it was
A time of innocence, a time of confidences.
Long ago, it must be, I have a photograph
Preserve your memories; They’re all that’s left you.

Simon & Garfunkel, “Bookends Theme

Throughout our lives, chapters begin and end; moments flee and leave us with everlasting emotions; people come and go; opportunities and ambitious are left fully realized or regretfully dismissed. These are the bookends of experience, and they make us who we are. We seek to capture these sentiments in artistic ways and share them with anyone who can appreciate what our contributors craft. If you’re looking for an affective experience, you’ve come to the write place.

…Ha, ha, ha. A pun.
