Dear readers, contributors, and staff,

Globally, we have been living in a world of static, confusion, limbo. The idea of being stagnant and confused has always intrigued me, from continuously living in a city that is fast-paced, and having an extraverted personality. So how can creators take this time, and write about their interpretation of limbo? How has limbo made a drastic change in life? More importantly, how can we use this time of limbo to create greater things?

I first came across limbo when studying abroad in Florence, and having a professor assign us to visit Piazza del limbo. This is where unbaptized children were buried, and stood in a state of limbo. When visiting the small square, I
remember feeling the mystery, curiosity, and connection to this spot. So let’s explore our own weirdness and stagnant states.
