Thanks to everyone who read, painted, sang, danced, or mingled at the social, it was splendid."The evening was all of chitter-chattering art-this-art-that. A mental eruption of our jabber clack. Uproarious poetry at intermittent strokes brilliance. No one eager for egress, wine not yet fully downed, the poety bunch trudges home on avenues of a fresh perspective. The paintings come down but then again when do they not? Fresh submissions are required. Servitude to art extracts longing desires. We to gather in this together. "

The Notebook issue is a collection of pages from artists, poets, and drunks- fresh first drafts of stories, scribbles, letters, doodles, sketches and poetry. The goal of the artist is not to make a masterpiece but to be making art. The Notebook is a tribute to the work in progress as a masterpiece.
