today is a new day

I feel a bit better today. I spent the last few hours with my friend Steve, working with him on his contribution to Crimewave. We sat on the floor, watched Survivor and worked on the layout of his story. Unlike the rest of the magazine, which Linette designs on the computer, we decided to lay his pages out by hand, gluing bits of paper and twisted pieces of metal to cardboard, surrounded by his words. It reminded me of the old days, when we used to lay out the entire magazine in much the same way. When Linette and I started this project, almost ten years ago now, thats how we did it. Wed type out our stories, cut them out, and then glue them down on a bed of scribbled words and images torn out of magazines. Crimewave has come to look better over time, and we probably use space more efficiently now, but its nice every now and then to take a stroll down memory lane with a glue stick and a pair of scissors.
