ruminate fall 2021 Ruminate

Issue 60, Fall 2021
The writers and artists whose work makes up Ruminate issue 60 probe the imagery and metaphor of being at sea. Whether it is being at sea in the waiting to find out if a beloved will survive, as in Devon Miller-Duggan’s poem, “Perhaps a Prayer for Surviving the Night. Or as in Peggy Shumaker’s “Gifts We Cannot Keep.” George Choundas’s engrossing story, “Katingo Carried 15,980 Tons and Gentleman,” transports us to the insular and particular world of those who live and work on cargo ships. And O-Jeremiah Agbaakin’s poem, “landscape with broken ekphrasis,” muses on the image of the last ship that brought enslaved people to the United States. Learn more...

about place october 2021 About Place Journal

Volume 6 Issue 4, October 2021 online
Do we define the earth or does the earth define us? Robin Wall Kimmerer says that “The land knows us, even if we are lost.” In a time of extreme climate change, extreme consumption and mass migrations, we cannot continue to tell ourselves the same stories about the land. We need to tell ourselves a different story (or remember ones long lost) – one that honors and heals both the earth and ourselves. Gary Nabhan, ethnobiologist, calls this idea Restoryation. These new stories “can become a compass for us” in a time when everyone feels adrift and uncertain. Learn more...
