Iron & Air Magazine / Issue 025
(digital included for subscribers)
You’re in a forest, holding a burning match. If you blow it out, nothing changes, and the forest is preserved for future generations. If you let it drop, trees that have stood tall for centuries will crumble to ash, allowing fresh seeds to blossom and flourish.
To hold on or let go — it’s a dilemma that follows us through life, challenging us time and again. The choice is never simple; it’s often too soon to let go, or too heavy to hold on to. It’s easy to be excited and seduced by the promise of something new, but holding on can be just as satisfying as letting go.
It takes commitment and courage to intensely love and care for something. That's what Issue 025 is all about.
