Explaining the Inexplicable

For eight years, the most common questions we’ve fielded regarding this annual winter book project are “Why?” and “How?” Both are almost impossible to answer. As for the first question, well, isn’t it always because the two most powerful words in the English language are “why not?” And as for the “how?” Hm, that’s not so easy to answer either. It’s not magic. But it’s also not an assembly line. We’ve been working together for so long that we know intuitively when to interject, when to shout out whatever ridiculous idea is on our minds and when to step back, stay quiet and let each other work. And that’s when the really cool stuff happens. The stuff that can’t be planned or explained or described or articulated or understood. Huh, maybe it is magic after all.
