I have always believed that the most important thing a human being can do is create, and if creation is the whispering of personal truths into the commotion of existence, then I established Fogged Clarity to make those whispers a little more audible. For me fogged clarity is the light caught on the canvas of a rain-slicked street, it’s remembering my age when I smell autumn, it’s the melancholia of a John Cheever story, or the chills that run down my back when I hear Adam Duritz sing. We all have our own evocations. The art in this journal is their product. The Clarity aims to showcase the work of some of the most intense and gifted thinkers in the world: some renown and others still hidden. Hopefully you will find something resonant here, something stirring and poignant, or perhaps you will be compelled to share the fruits of your own fogged clarity.
