In a lull we look for deeper meaning. We see symbols and assign stories to our reality. We can divide fact from fantasy, limiting beliefs from greater truths. Exploring the subconscious invites in strange coincidence and happenings, and most of all greater self awareness.

The first issue of Lull came to me fairly easily. I was in a depression in the winter of 2018 after a pretty gnarly bike accident. I was questioning what I was doing 15 years into my freelance design career. It was hard to look at all the missing pieces of the puzzle and understand that I couldn’t rush the process of healing, or to find another client to pay the bills. I turned to the one thing I felt could help me face this uncertainty having been a devout atheist all of my life. Tarot, a subject I had dabbled in for many years, became a daily practice. I bought a deck just to learn about the meaning of the cards. In practice and with meditations, it helped me have hope to keep moving and never give up on my abilities for empathy, compassion and perseverance, especially related to my strengths as a creative person.

The creative professionals and artists in this issue (including myself) have struggled with generating ideas and purpose in their work after years in the industry. When it comes to creative outlets and getting back to your most beloved passions, sometimes all it takes is a deep dive into your dreams, or allowing visualizations to permeate your everyday work.

 

The first issue of LULL came to me fairly easily. I was in a deep-set depression. I was questioning what I was doing, 15 years into my design career. It was gnarly and hard to look at all the missing pieces of the puzzle and understand that I couldn’t rush the process of healing, or landing another client to pay the bills. I turned to learning more wholeheartedly about Tarot, a subject I had dabbled in for many years. Reading the cards as a daily practice, it started out as a way to take my mind off the gut wrenching thought that I would be broke and without clients or a partner. In practice, with meditation, it helped give me the hope I needed to keep moving and never give up on my abilities.

There are lots of these stories that weave together our desire for knowing what magic is in the universe and the sometimes agonizing process of allowing time to grow ideas or cultivate opportunities. Impatience can be the biggest hurdle.


Lull began this exploration in March 2019 with a road trip to Yosemite National Park for a photoshoot with two great friends and my best friend from Boston, photographer Heather McGrath. From there we were inspired again by the vastness of nature and our combined visions for this issue’s theme on tarot, dreams and making our own magic happen.

There is a liberating quality to opening up expansive and evocative ways of thinking like that of the Tarot and other types of spiritual beliefs or metaphysical understandings. In the issue of FATE, we’ve gathered imagery, interviews and stories from working creatives and artists that found their way to their truest expressions by knowing how to harness the unconscious and their intuition to make ideas of fantasy and destiny into a reality.

I’ve talked to many creatives who have struggled with this very idea. Most have in one way or another realized their dreams and leveled up on their creative energy by getting down and dirty working with concepts that are beyond the realm of the rational.
