We founded this publication in the interest and exaltation of “common people.” Our aim is to expand thought and inspiration on the charm, magic, law of the ordinary today that makes it so predictably, ineluctably human: the frustration, the failure, the double-mindedness, the temporary harbors. The pub fights and friendships. Familiar places, textures. Love, rancor, peeling potatoes. We seek work that, in your peculiar way, performs and exemplifies the experience of being in a state of complete ordinariness.
