Welcome to issue number nine of splinterswerve and thank you for visiting. This issue's theme is ebb / flow. Dive deep down into our web pages as we explore the rhythm of all things: how we succumb to the flow and fight against it, how we move forward and pull back, how we wax and wane, how we live and die.
splinterswerve has gone international this issue, with established artists and writers from around the globe, from Iceland to the United Kingdom, USA to Australia, and a fair representation from our home country Canada, too.
Visit the sound section and listen to ambient drone from Singapore by elintseeker as an accompaniment to a trip to the Jade Buddha Temple in Shanghai with Sarah E. Truman. Welcome the flow of spring with Wendy Morton and the February Sun and celebrate life in colour with Yinka Oyelese's dazzling digital photography. There's a lot here, so slip into this sea of creativity and surrender to the undertow. Just remember to come up slowly to avoid the bends. -Wendi Seskus-James, Managing Editor
