In a way a publication is the result of a kind of communication between persons and places. The actual product is a short hand, a sign, a code of things past. The passing of so called real time: that is, long hours of intense work-thought, relationships brought to an edge, some joys, some sorrows (which may not be apparent at first). Then one reads a list of names that somehow have had something to do with a place and each other. It is then revealed that a place of quality existed, and persons of quality existed. The convolution of these forces joined, and worked on a place at a place for a place. A "communitas" was established. —John Hejduk
