MOONROOT issue 2, MOONROUTES is availabe on issuu, y’all!
My piece got published in MOONROOT, a zine on/for Asien-Ameriken women. Right now I am in New Mexico: I picked up Jackie Wang from the airport last night: so I got my copy hand-delivered to me and it is so beautiful. There is also writing by Cindy Tadeo, Eva B. Gubat, may young, Ching-In Chen, Vikki Law, Zena Chua Hardt, Hei Kyong Kim, jackie wang, Phuong Vuong, Eva Song Margolis, D’Lo, Amy Dewan, Tabitha Sin, Elaine Castillo, Alison Lin, Phira Rehm, and Naazneen Diwan.
Elaine Castillo begins her piece with this quote from Trinh T. Minh-ha:
Never does one open the discussion by coming right to the heart of the matter. For the heart of the matter is always somewhere else than where it is supposed to be. To allow it to emerge, people approach it indirectly by postponing until it matures, by letting it come when it is ready to come. There is no catching, no pushing; no directing, no breaking through, no need for linear progression which gives the comforting illusion that one knows where one goes.
I am going to read this zine really really closely.
