Threadbare is a journal and music label. Each month we take on a new theme - a few words to act as a spark for bigger things. Through that theme we find and create new work, from music to photography, illustration, radio, poetry, prose and film.
If you would like to contribute to our current theme then we'd love to hear from you - submit here or get in touch at wearethreadbare at gmail.com
Yes, this month on Threadbare we will be very much speaking while we’re spoken to as we dive head-first into the proverbial pool of synchronicity with Olympic-sized intentions and a dazzling one piece swimsuit to match...
of time from that unimaginable first day, when a terrible God marked out the days and agonies, to that other, when the ubiquitous flow of earthly time goes back to its source, Eternity, and flickers out in the present, the past, and the future—what now belongs to me. Between dawn and dark lies the history of the world. From the vault of night I see at my feet the wanderings of the Jew, Carthage put to the sword, Heaven and Hell. Grant me, O Lord, the courage and the joy to ascend to the summit of this day.
A book all about time About how it doesn’t exist How the past and the future Are one continuous present. I think that all people - those living those who have lived And those who are still to live - are alive now. I should like to take that subject to pieces, Like a soldier dismantling his rifle.
A beautiful portrayal of synchronicity as an uncompromising, magnetic force: the need to not only be with another but to be another, to mirror their hopes, desires, urges, until your identity is completely immersed in theirs… (‘Surrender’ - Ólöf Arnalds)
