This issue of The MOON includes all of last month’s issue and three new contributions–an essay by Chumash fire keeper Art Cisneros, a short story by Gary Ives about a missionary’s son adopted by an indigenous tribe of the rainforest, and a new Movie You Might’ve Missed, Children of the Amazon. by Brazilian filmmaker Denise Zmekhol, who also took the beautiful photo above.
The MOON is going on stay-cation for the rest of the summer. Your editor has taken a fulltime job raising awareness and funds for the Carlton Complex Long Term Recovery Group, which is working to rebuild 40 homes for people who lost them in last summer’s wildfires–the largest in Washington state history–and can’t afford to rebuild on their own. I find that I can’t do a good job of attending to both tasks, much as I love them both. (To speed our recovery effort, please consider donating!)
I plan to produce a new issue of The MOON in September, and will update our editorial calendar to reflect that. Thank you beloved MOON readers for your patience and support!
