While reading Seven Pillars of Wisdom by T.E. Lawrence
I came across this reminder of the vein in which I believe
www.forgetmagazine.com was launched three years ago today:
"The dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they
may act out their dream with open eyes, to make it possible.
This I did."
Take notice; We
are the dreamers of the day. We are the new Irish, whispered
into being by the courage and defiance of those who came before
us; Dennis Lee, Margaret Atwood, Milton Acorn, bpNichol, Margaret
Lawrence, Bliss Carman, Al Purdy, Lorna Crozier, Irving Layton,
and Patrick Lane. We are, and will always be, Forget Magazine.
Killin' it steady for three years with much more to come.
375 articles, 104 Canadian writers, a serious attitude, and
the biggest goddamn orange afro north of the 49th. You. Could.
