1951, Inaugural Issue

“As someone studying in New York, the City of Dreams, I think of home and, really, every city as a city of dreams — and dreamers. Looking at this cover, I wonder: What did they dream soimg.org could be in 1950? I wonder if their dreams came true — and then — will ours? The author of The Little Prince says that a dream without a plan is just a wish. Religion, whether we practice one or not, says that there’s no faith without work. So, here we have: to feel the need, to plan for it, to work to make it happen. I know the most impacted of systemic issues have worked for generations and will work for more generations. I also see the same dynamics that have prevailed throughout history: those without power demanding, appealing to those with power, to give them their due. I wish for this, but I do not plan on it on its own. I don’t believe my voice to be that much more compelling than my ancestors’. To make soimg.org the city we wish it to be, I believe that planning has to include a complete shift in dynamics and imagined possibilities. When we plan, do we see the other side? Do we think on how to maintain it? Is it generative or is it a goal that, when we capture it, we’ll look at each other asking: What’s next?

“A wish can be a dangerous thing when left unattended. It has to be held properly or it festers and twists into something…other. So my big question is: Who are we counting on to tend to our wishes? That’s the question I hear behind, ‘What will soimg.org look like in another 70 years?’

“The beautiful thing is, we can all wish, we can all plan, we can all work.

That already matters. When we do it together, there’s no established power more powerful.
