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.
