Our interview with the author of Guide, artist/quantum physicist Enrique Martinez Celaya anchors this issue. No artist I know of is more deeply thoughtful: "Only art for life's sake makes sense to me." And Richard Berger shares his meditation about the death of a homeless artist who lived under the San Francisco Art Institute, "To All Artists, Known and Unknown." Painter Erik d'Azevedo talks about his childhood among indigenous peoples in the U.S. and Africa. And Mary Rakow sets a new standard for art writing.
