don’t often buy magazines but I went out of my way to seek out and buy Kinfolk’s issue 10 which was all about things that get better with age.
The reason why it called out to me is because it offers a refeshing and multi-stranded perspective on
aging best summed up by Nathan Williams (Kinfolk’s editor in chief) and Georgia Frances King (Kinfolk’s editor);
“The older folks in our lives can teach us a lot about how we should
live. We believe we’re made fuller by the people, meals and traditions
of things past. Other aspects of life also improve with a little time:
wine, truffles, a good jar of sauerkraut. Simplicity in design survives
longer than the complex. Processes such as fermenting, pickling and
curing bring out the flavors in foods through extending their
lives. While making this issue, we’ve gleaned kindhearted advice from
the elderly friends in our lives, and they all speak the same message:
Love a lot, laugh often and once you’re over the peak of that hill,
prepare for life to pick up pace as gravity brings you rolling back down
the other side. So please: Pour yourself a hot drink, curl up on the
couch and enjoy our fresh take on old things.”
This is such a gorgeous publication and I would recommend this issue to anyone with similar view on life to us. There are still a few copies to be found in independent book/magazine sellers and I have found some on Amazon too.
