“First Time”

 

Letter From the Editor

Life is all about the little moments: the ecstatic, the daring, the electric, the taboo, the divine. Each holds a chance to learn something about ourselves and the world around us, to reach out and grasp eternity, if only for that brief, frozen instant. Here at littledeath, we believe in living life with joyful, reckless abandon, taking every experience as a holy one, and diving in feet first. We wanted to capture the anticipation, adrenaline, and fear that comes with first times for our premiere issue. First loves, first losses, first doubts, first joys, first pains. Firsts are an inevitable part of life and we strive to highlight and emphasize how important they are to appreciate both in the moment and in retrospect. We are, after all, works in progress, coloring our world with story and experience. Come share a story with us, some familiar and some foreign, and grasp on to that shimmer of eternity... If only for a moment. Cheers to this first issue, and to many more, dear reader. Thank you.
-Lara
