Star 82 Review is the online and print magazine I founded last year. Now, four issues later, it is thriving! Wonderful writers and artists continue to send new work, readers comment, and interested people follow the updates on Facebook. In our fourth issue, we look at what we lose and what we gain. When we make changes in our work, choices in our lives, we often discover something new. Sometimes the act of finding leads to knowledge, sometimes to pain, sometimes to a wild mix of varying emotions. New art this issue: we've got words made from photographs by Ron Nath, whose art may be found in Art-O-Mats around the country, and close-up photos of Celeste Maia's book art. These are only two samples of the talented artists and writers featured throughout. The stories, poems, and artwork in this Winter issue 1.4 deal with lessons, failures, and successes that may only be temporary. It's Winter so we've got snow (well, some of us do: we certainly have weather), we're looking at food, and seeking out warm places to curl up in order to sleep and dream and comfort oneself. Maybe we find home.
