We con­stantly ask the ques­tion “What if?” and live our lives mostly in a state of limbo. In a world rid­dled with lis­ti­cles for di­gestibil­ity and con­vo­luted news that’s meant for quick con­sump­tion, we’re re­quired to set our feel­ings aside to keep up with the me­chan­i­cal pace of mod­ern life. But we have to stop and ask our­selves: Who re­quires us to sell out what makes us most hu­man—what makes us feel? This month, we dig deep into the core of our theme: sen­si­bil­i­ties. We roam the realm of the sen­sual, the mys­ti­cal, and the do­main of “what ifs.” Beauty queen Laura Lehmann ex­plores with us pos­si­bil­i­ties of al­ter­nate re­al­i­ties had she cho­sen an­other path. We also min­gle with the lesser known mon­sters of Filipino lore, bask in the heal­ing pow­ers of stones, and even hope for a sem­blance of a fu­ture through a deck of or­a­cle cards. In this is­sue, we take you back to the ba­sics of what makes us feel so we can re­vert a lit­tle to our hu­man­ity.
