With grateful hearts we offer this, the first issue of our second volume. For this, our fifth issue, we offer varve as our constellating theme. From the Swedish varv, whose semantic web includes notions of “revolution,” accretion “in layers,” and “circle,” a varve is that precise geologic formation referring to the whole of any annual sedimentary layer. We didn't need to rely on Einstein alone to relativize space and time; all of the build-up of matter accrued by the passage had already accomplished that—the spatialization of time. The happy product of long conversations, profound silences, many clicks, and links—the editors could not have done this without your support. We welcome your materials for our future issues as well as your continued contributions.
