Spring Has Sprung?

“April is the cruelest month, breeding
lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
memory and desire, stirring
dull roots with spring rain.”
~ T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land

“Spring is the time of year when it is summer in the sun and winter in the shade.”
~ Charles Dickens, Great Expectations

Being Irish


I think being a woman is like being Irish… Everyone says you’re important and nice, but you take second place all the time.

I’m Irish!…When I feel well I feel better than anyone, when I am in pain I yell at the top of my lungs, and when I am dead I shall be deader than anybody.
~ Morgan Llywelyn

The Freedom of Choice

Today I choose life. Every morning when I wake up I can choose joy, happiness, negativity,  pain…

~ Kevyn Aucoin

I suppose people will be asking: what are we going to do with all this creative truth? The answer is simple…

Audacity may well be a zine, and completely pro-bono, but it will be freely distributed across the world in electronic form. Call it a showcase, call it an anthology, call it a collection. Call it what you may, we’re going to take this inspiration, this creativity, this hope, and we’re going to add a little magic and set it…
