Introducing the Essentials Issue
Kinfolk Issue Sixteen: The Essentials Issue will explore the different meanings of Life's fundamentals and suggest ways we can incorporate them into our daily pves. We want to uncover the heart, the kernel, the foundation, the bedrock-whatever brings us back to our cores. Deciding what is essential in our pves isn't about paring back our belongings and forgoing our beloved but unnecessary frivopties: Instead of determining how little we canlivewith, it's about working out what we cannotlivewithout.
