Eutopia Issue

Author: Clara Weinreich

Clementine is a bi-annual journal circulating ideas for future perspectives. Each issue offers a proposition that invites to be considered, shared, and adopted. Clementine provides a record of ideas and inspirations guided by a specific proposition in each issue. It is personal, inspirational, and positive. The idea is to bring people together and share their varied and unique perspectives. We pull together diverse perceptions and aspire to spark new experiences.

This year offered an array of turmoil and deep soul searching. There has been a lot of confusion, negativity, and fear. Eutopia is the happy place. A place that might only exist in memory but inspires future intentions. It sends an invite to share and connect. You may use it as a guide or set new objectives. Be inspired to change and improve.

We are closing in on 2020 and can transform our intentions to be guided by interpretations of hope. What is our ideal place of well-being? Where do we find our place of least resistance? This project was created to survey ourselves and replicate that feeling. An invitation to see the world through someone else’s eyes. Inspire others and find common ground. Maybe, just maybe this will offer a glimpse of unity. What does paradise look like after all?

Our days consist of accumulated small moments as well as an array of big ones. We take joy in the delicious bites of food we take. In the sun rays playing on a wall. The sound of leaves moving in the wind. And then there are the stories of families coming together and friends offering support. These are Eutopia’s from daily journeys that shine a bright light and transform our lives to perfection. Even if it is just for a moment. Even if it is just within this journal.

How to submit
Per definition, Eutopia is a place of “ideal well-being” as a practical aspiration. Compared with Utopia as an impossible concept. This is a very personal and intimate proposition. It connects to memory and relates to private moments. Stories that warm your heart and inspire. And yes, it might stem from a sentimental yearning for the happiness of a former place or time. But time has multiple dimensions. It means yesterday or many moons ago. You decide. 

Please send an item, a photograph, a memory, an objet trouvé, something dear to your heart, an art piece, a song—whatever it may be that gives you the sensation, the vision of a happy place. It can be something very small or seemingly „unimportant“ to the world. The only thing that counts is why it is important for YOU. And then share your story about it. We would love to hear details, feelings, and deeper thoughts. Anonymous submissions are welcome.
