20 ways to use your Leather Journal
Blank leather journals spark the imagination. They can be more than simple day-to-day thoughts, they can be the beginning (or continuation of) legacies. With a few sheets of paper and a way to write, your journal becomes the doorway to brand new worlds, thoughts, and ideas.
Here are just some of the ways you can use your leather notebooks:
1. Make up your own set of writing prompts
We’ve given you some ideas for writing prompts to get you started writing in your journal. Why not come up with a few of your own? Whether it’s snippets of dialogue you’ve overheard , an inspiring song on the radio, a photograph in a magazine, or a random word you are dying to use in a story, the possibilities for creating your own writing prompts are endless!
2. Keep track of your finances
Even though technology has changed our lives, there are still those who believe that some things are best kept on paper rather than in the cloud. Keep track of your purchases, record your income, and balance the two in your journal. Pull out your journal when tax time rolls around.
3. Write down your favorite quotes
Quotes are great motivators for when you need a little bit of inspiration. Others can be so clever that they simply must be written down. Author Robert Byrne got so adept at collecting clever quotes that his collection ended up as the bestselling book series “The Best Things Anybody Ever Said”.
4. Keep track of your daily astrological horoscope or tarot readings
For some, both astrology and tarot are excellent tools to get in touch with their inner self. Like a dream journal, keeping track of the cards or the stars can help you spot trends and how they relate to what’s going on in your life.
5. Create a Bucket List
Everyone has a list of things they want to do before they ‘kick the bucket’. Success coach Jack Canfield suggests starting your own bucket list in your journal by writing down 100 things you want to see, be, do, or places you want to travel to in your lifetime.
6. List everything you are grateful for
Keeping a gratitude journal is a great way to count your blessings. Making it a daily habit helps you to realize just how fortunate you are.
7. Write down every unusual name you have ever encountered
You can do this for people or for businesses. One writer worked in a call center making several hundred calls in a day. Whenever an unusual name popped up, he would make note of it in his journal. Whenever he needed a smile or needed to create a character in a story, he would look to his journal for inspiration.
8. Keep a list of story, article, or book ideas
Your leather journal is your passport to anywhere your imagination wants to go. Use it to create characters and worlds to generate stories in print or film. If non-fiction is your love, your journal is the perfect place to write down your research (http://top10leatherjournals.com/create-keep-research-journal/ ) notes.
9. Start a language journal
Whether you want to learn French, Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs, Elvish as created by J.R.R. Tolkien or any other language, write down vocabulary and grammar as a way to help you learn. Some of the best loved and useful dictionaries and vocabulary guides began inside someone’s journal.
10. Make an inventory of all the things in your house
Go from room to room, making note of all of the things in each one. Keeping track of all of your stuff could end up being very useful for insurance purposes.
11. Start a food diary
If you are a bit of a foodie, using a journal to keep track of the dishes you’ve cooked, recipes from friends or family that you’ve enjoyed or restaurants you’ve gone to is a great way to help you remember and recreate them.
12. Keep a fitness journal
Your journal can be the ultimate fitness tracker! Use it to keep track of your fitness goals and your progress in attaining them.
13. Create a guided meditation journal
Like journaling, meditation has long been a great way to improve your health and outlook on life. Make a daily entry of meditations that you used; now long you meditated for and how you felt afterwards. You can even write out a script and record it to help you get into a deep state of relaxation.
14. Write down bits of wisdom you’ve learned
A journal is the perfect venue to gather up all the helpful hints and best advice you have received in your lifetime. Write these down alongside your own insights you’ve gained through hands-on experience.
15. Take an inventory of your talents & possible businesses opportunities
Everybody’s good at something. Why not write down the skills that you have? During your brainstorming session in your journal, you just might come up with a killer idea that will launch your own business.
16. Make a Wish List
A wish list can be similar to a bucket list. A wish list can be the things you want to own or things you want to create or be. It can be similar to an art journal or a Zibaldone book.
17. Create a household helpful hints book
These guides were very popular for newlywed brides and women who managed a household from the 18th Century till the middle 20th Century. Who couldn’t use a few helpful hints on making the home run smoothly? If you’ve got tips and tricks, and recipes for cleaning products from botanicals that you make yourself, having that written down is invaluable. You may also want to hand that knowledge down as an heirloom to others.
18. Make a brag book about your kids
Keep track of all the important things in your child’s life. Write down the day they got their first tooth, read their first storybook and all of the little things that make parenting so wonderful!
19. Make a list of self-nurturing things to delight your senses
Does a Qi Gong session or getting a massage with sweet scented oils make you feel complete? Or is it something even simpler like a walk in the park barefoot in the grass? Really think about the things that you do just for YOU and write them down in your journal.
20. Research your ancestry
Everyone wants to find out who their ancestors were and where they came from. Your leather journal can be the perfect place to document what you find out about them and yourself through their history.
We’ve only scratched the surface with the potential uses for your leather journals. How do you use yours?

Caring for Your Leather
Leather is a beautiful, durable material when cared for properly. Our bonded leather is best cared for through normal handling. Your hands provide the natural oils that nourish most leather. Our bonded leather is tanned specifically with special oils that replace the need to apply any creams or waxes. For normal dirt and spills, use a soft washcloth dampened with lukewarm water and some sort of mild detergent. Once clean, dry your leather with a clean towel. Do not use alcohol, cleaning solvents, oils, varnishes, or polishes. Avoid extreme temperatures.
Assembled in Bar Harbor, Maine, USA
Craftsmanship is a way of life in Maine, particularly here on the coast and islands that shape Frenchman’s Bay. For the past 40 years, Gallery Leather has been part of that rich tradition, handcrafting leather products of exceptional quality. Over the years, we have made leather goods for many of North America’s luxury brands, all assembled by hand in Maine and guaranteed to last for generations.

90,000 Why choose a cream according to your age
Cosmetologists do not recommend using anti-aging cosmetics under the age of 25. It contains components that are not yet needed by young skin. “Rejuvenating” substances at this stage are produced in sufficient quantities and without additional incentives. Concentrated creams with active ingredients will only pamper the skin: it will lose its ability to work without external motivation and will quickly waste its natural potential.
All that skin under 25 needs is to maintain optimal moisture levels. Therefore, creams for young skin are light in composition and texture.
If there is a feeling that the effectiveness of the usual cream has decreased, this does not mean that it has stopped working, and it is time to move on to something serious. The myth that over time the skin gets used to your favorite cream was dispelled in an interview for the magazine “Women’s Health” by Tatyana Valentinovna Puchkova, Candidate of Biological Sciences, expert, co-chairman of the Coordination Council of the perfumery and cosmetic industry, chairman of the board of the Russian perfumery and cosmetic association in Moscow: “Creams do not cause addiction.And the effectiveness may decrease due to the fact that the needs of the skin have changed. Requests may change throughout the year, depending on the stage of the cycle, age, diet, emotional state ”.
Cosmetics need to be selected by age, and the age range on the packaging is indicated for a reason. For mature skin, a cream marked 25+ as attached plantain is empty and useless. And a powerful remedy for aging skin will not smooth out the first wrinkles in the corners of the eyes in an instant.
Face care 25-30 years old
The skin is still young and active, coping with the first signs of aging on its own. But it already sensitively perceives the influence of the environment and begins to lose moisture. Facial wrinkles become noticeable.
After 25 years, the hormonal background stabilizes, the skin type appears more actively.Acne is unlikely, but dry skin becomes even drier and oily skin becomes oily.
The main function of the 25+ cream is moisturizing, for all skin types, including oily skin. Don’t confuse sebum production with hydration. Dry skin is a type and dehydrated skin is a condition. All skin types can experience a lack of moisture.
Young skin care products help to produce its own collagen, maintain tone and “fight” for youth.
F oz : Moisturize, protect from UV rays and chapping, replenish vitamin reserves, stimulate collagen and elastin production, regulate acidity, prevent inflammation, maintain tone.
Face care 35-40 years old
After 30 years, the skin begins to age slowly. Collagen production is inhibited, elasticity is lost.Traces of fatigue and blue under the eyes are becoming more noticeable than they were at 25. The sebaceous glands reduce the intensity and produce less sebum. The owners of the oily type are lucky here: the skin shines less, and age-related changes are not yet very noticeable. Decent compensation for the eternal struggle with glitter.
Moisturizing alone is not enough. The skin needs components that slow down fading, start the renewal process and make the complexion even.
The following components are added to the 25+ products:
Functions : moisturize, start cell regeneration, even out complexion, slow down the aging process.
Face care 45-50 years old
There comes a period of hormonal changes. Blood supply is impaired, cell renewal is slower. Collagen fibers are damaged and the skin is no longer as firm and taut.
The composition of the anti-aging cream becomes richer, and the intensity of the active ingredients is higher.But in the fight against time, one cream will not cope – you need comprehensive care. Then serums, essences, emulsions and other tubes appear on the women’s shelf. And not only for the face, but also for areas where the skin is thin and sensitive: neck, décolleté, area around the eyes.
The texture of the anti-aging cream becomes denser and the composition richer. The components penetrate into the deep layers, and vegetable oils are necessarily present in the composition. The list is complemented by hyaluronic acid, coenzyme Q10 and vitamins.Vitamin E is among the must-haves.
The following components are added to the composition of products for the skin of 35-40 years:
Functions : prolong youth, stimulate metabolic processes in cells, moisturize, brighten.
Face care 55+
Hormonal changes continue, and cellular activity decreases.The top layer quickly becomes thinner, and if you do not take care of the skin regularly, the process becomes rapid.
After 50, any type of skin is reduced to dry, so you need to increase moisture, and not only at the superficial level. Therefore, creams, serums and other products are more concentrated and penetrate not only into the epidermis, but also into the next layer of the skin – into the dermis. Attention is focused on stimulating recovery processes and lifting.

What to be afraid of in L’Etoile. 5 secrets sellers are silent about
L’Etoile is a store that leaves no one without emotions: for some it gives sincere joy from shopping, while for others it disappoints with a boorish attitude and products of dubious quality. Read about 5 things an honest buyer should be afraid of in L’Etoile below.At the end of the article – a hint, without which you should never leave the store with branded blue and gold bags.
Products with an expired expiration date
Expired cosmetics do not disappear from L’Etoile – either a new label is stuck on it, or a big discount is made on it. Moreover, on luxury goods, deadlines are most often re-pasted, and budget ones are simply sold for a promotion.
Life hack: in order not to run into delays, in L’Etoile it is better to buy only new items or limited editions of cosmetics of famous brands.These products never stay on store shelves and cannot be expired. And the expiration date of the product must be printed on the factory label, it is desirable that it be engraved on the packaging itself. If the date is printed on the label and stickers on top, this is a reason to doubt the freshness of the product.
Previously printed and used products
Some products are sold without protective stickers and in packages without seals. In L’Etoile, of course, there are such, and you should always be on the alert with them: the product may be previously used, despite the presence of testers.
Before buying, it is better to make sure that no one has used the product on yourself and print it: see if there are any smudges on it, if the lipstick stick is broken, if the bottle is sticky, if there are streaks, if the brush is fluffed up. We recommend checking the mascara brush for lint – they definitely should not be in a new bottle.
Testers in any cosmetic store, not only in L’Etoile, can be used by anyone: a sick or healthy person, with clean or dirty hands, presentable appearance, or in frankly shabby clothes.And any of these people can leave behind some kind of infection in a bottle of gloss or lipstick. And also in L’Etoile for bulk products there is always one brush for all customers – it can also be a breeding ground for infection.
To minimize the risks of catching demodicosis or herpes from someone, you need to have a personal set of brushes and napkins with you. When using lipstick, it is better to type the color with a brush tangentially closer to the base of the stick – it is impossible to apply lipstick with this part of the lipstick and no one touched it.You can also wipe off the top layer of lipstick with a disinfectant wipe and use a brush again. Glitters, eyeshadows and powders are best tested on the wrist using your fingers or a brush.
Fragrances that were stored incorrectly
The shelves in L’Etoile are always brightly lit, and in winter the air conditioners in the store work for heating. Some perfumes do not withstand such conditions and deteriorate even ahead of time, but no one throws them away – they try to sell the fragrances in tightly sealed packages.
Fortunately, at the checkout you can freely ask to open the box to make sure the quality of the goods. The cashier has no right to refuse you, and if he evades and discourages you from checking, it’s time to be on your guard – something is wrong with the goods.
At L’Etoile, consultants receive a percentage of sales. At the same time, each seller is responsible for a certain brand and most of all money is paid to him for selling products of exactly the brand for which he is assigned.Therefore, each consultant tries to lead the client towards a stand with products that are profitable for him, often to the detriment of the interests of the buyer.
How to avoid cheating: choose cosmetics on the Internet in advance and come to an offline store for it, or narrow the range of requirements for the desired product as much as possible. For example, instead of saying “I need mascara” it’s better to say “I am looking for waterproof mascara with a silicone brush in brown”. Clarification will force the seller to expand the range of searches and still find the product that you are looking for.
The L’Etoile chain of stores is full of pitfalls, which it would be better to find out about before going there. And in order not to run into a low-quality product, you should always check the deadlines, the product itself, and feel free to ask to print it out at the checkout.
The last advice from our editors: the buyer of L’Etoile should always take the check! After all, a check is the only proof that a customer made a purchase in a particular store. He will help you return the product and get your money back if, when opening the house, it turns out that it is of inadequate quality.
“Our eternal themes are corruption, bureaucracy, hooligans, alcoholics.” What the 20th century looks like in the drawings of the Chayan magazine cartoonists
I came to Chayan 30 years ago and went all the steps of the magazine’s career ladder: first I was a correspondent, then head of a department, deputy editor. For the past six years I have been working as an editor-in-chief. As long as I can remember myself here, we have never had a taboo, a list of do’s and don’ts. In “Chayan” they did not call from above with the words “what do you allow yourself?”We are free, but you need to know the sense of proportion. It’s no secret that inside every journalist there is a small censor. We know where the line is between “ok” and “no”. Firstly, there is the law on the press, in which everything is clearly spelled out: you cannot offend the national and religious feelings of people, their honor and dignity, invade privacy, and so on. Second, there are unwritten rules. Take the Charlie Hebdo situation. At the time of the scandal, I did not know about this magazine at all, although I follow our foreign colleagues.This is a marginal magazine on the scale of one country: jokes below the belt, swagger, permissiveness. We would never allow ourselves such topics. Killing people for their views is nonsense, but of course, you can’t joke like that either.
Making fun of shortcomings, we try to improve the morals of people. Otherwise, why do we exist? Our eternal themes are corruption, bribery, bureaucracy, hooligans, swindlers, alcoholics. In Soviet times, “Chayan” did not publish cartoons of our politicians – then it was not accepted, but of famous cultural figures – yes.But in the 2000s, friendly cartoons appeared in “Chayan” about Mintimer Shaimiev, Rustam Minnikhanov and other famous Tatarstan politicians. There was no negative reaction to them: these are people with a great sense of humor.
The journal publishes not only cartoons, humoresques and anecdotes, but also critical materials and investigations. There were cases when “Chayan” was “run over”. Several years ago, a large agricultural holding took offense at our material. We wrote about how he occupied the land, which according to the documents belonged to the peasants.The facts were firm, but the author of the material made a mistake in the name of the subsidiary structure through which the agricultural holding operated. This formal lead gave rise to a million-dollar lawsuit. We then admitted the mistake in court, published the amendment and paid the offended plaintiff a much smaller amount.
Journal Theater. • Boa constrictor and rabbits
DIRECTOR: Konstantin Bogomolov
THEATER: Moscow Art Theater. Chekhov
Black scenery is replaced by pink, the authoritarian regime is reviving with a new vulgar facade: Bogomolov’s “Dragon” – of course, about the failure of de-Stalinization, but not only.The almost unedited fairy tale by Evgeny Schwartz in the hands of the director becomes a warning to the modern democratic movement. Fun fact: “Dragon” is the same book that Ksenia Sobchak presented to Alexei Navalny on the air of “Dozhd”. The hint is the same as in Bogomolov’s new work.
Once upon a time there were giants
Bogomolov’s meeting with Schwartz was a matter of time: the director was always interested in fairy tales – perhaps more than anyone else in our new theater. At the dawn of his career, he directed Tove Jansson’s Moomin and the Comet.Then he compared intellectual Russian prose with a fairy tale in Wonderland-80 (Dovlatov plus Carroll), Turandot (Gozzi plus Dostoevsky) and The Karamazovs (Dostoevsky plus folklore). “Stavanger”, “Gargantua and Pantagruel”, “The Musketeers” – all these performances featured fairy tale characters, from giants and trolls to Carlson, who lives on the roof.
In the hands of Nikolai Roshchin or Andrey the Mighty, the tale turns into a kaleidoscope of inventive formal solutions. For Bogomolov, who is indifferent to attractions, a fairy tale is something exactly the opposite: the more incredible the story, the more stingy his funds will be.The director is seduced by convention, acting, comical discrepancy between the signified and the signifier: on stage, to make an ordinary person a dragon, a giant or a talking cat, it is enough to call him that. This is Ivan Sergeich, he is a giant. Deal? Let’s go further.
Let’s re-paste the wallpaper
Over the years of joint work, Konstantin Bogomolov and artist Larisa Lomakina have created their own unique visual code. Closed space of an office or apartment. Monitors for broadcasting the performance.Factory, not theatrical, furniture of varying degrees of ugliness. Luxury things like a stucco fireplace (“Prince”) or walls upholstered in crocodile skin (“Musketeers”). Or the monstrous rhinoceros chair from the Karamazovs. Lomakin and Bogomolov – the writers of everyday life are akin to the leading figure of Moscow conceptualism Ilya Kabakov, only he is about Soviet psychology, and these are about Russian.
“Dragon” is both similar and not similar to other projects of the tandem: absolutely new instruments have been added to the tested instruments. First we see the house of the archivist Charlemagne – and this is a typical Lomakin set design.Light gray floral wallpaper, a lacquered folding table, an ugly checkered sofa – the furnishings seem to be copied from rental advertisements at CIAN (but in fact taken from Nikita Mikhalkov’s old film “Five Evenings” based on the thaw play of the same name by Alexander Volodin). On a black harlequin, an oriental dragon shines, with which robes and towels are adorned – a native monster that has dissolved in the interior (this is almost a direct self-quote: in The Seagull, a gigantic moth with a seagull beak circled around the Mkhatov curtain – another variation on the theme of a domestic monster).
But the backdrop covered with wallpaper soars up to the grates, the space is depressurized – and with it the visual language of the tandem. Behind the first, household decoration, the second is discovered – a huge empty pavilion made of black cloth, along which a live donkey wanders on a leash (empty “concert” stage, animals – not at all like Bogomolov!) After the death of the dragon, the black mourning color is replaced by glamorous pink (“Pink worse than black “, – the director writes in the annotation of the project). The acid-pink room without corners seems to continue the Shekhtel hall of the Moscow Art Theater with its curved surfaces flowing into each other: for Lomakina, with her architectural education, this dialogue was certainly important.
In The Ideal Husband, The Karamazovs, Boris Godunov, the video sequence, with rare exceptions, was limited to close-ups of the actors and episodes filmed in advance; “Dragon” uses the possibilities of media much wider – here and mapping, and movie quotes, and computer graphics. The new approach required the participation of a video artist: Ilya Shagalov, Kirill Serebrennikov’s constant co-author (among other things, he designed Mueller’s Car, in which Bogomolov participates as an actor) became him. The scene with the wounded Lancelot, “implanted” into the black-and-white footage of Boris’s death from the film “The Cranes Are Flying,” is not only delightfully beautiful, but also completely unusual for the director, as if it was not staged by him.
Joy of old age
Bogomolov once admitted that it is more interesting for him to work with older actors than with young ones: they say, a novice artist is a storm and an onslaught, “muscle flexing” and a thirst for attention, and a director needs something completely different – freedom and peace, taste and a sense of humor. But apparently there are exceptions. Perhaps the best thing about “Dragon” is the precise and surprisingly economical, kind of muted play of the young. Moreover, if Pavel Tabakov (Genrikh), Evgeny Perevalov (archivist) and Kirill Trubetskoy (cat) have already worked with Bogomolov, then Lancelot and Elsa are played by debutants, Moscow Art Theater trainees – Kirill Vlasov and Nadezhda Kaleganova.On stage, they all look older than their age – somehow wise, or something.
The requirements for Oleg Tabakov as a loyal burgomaster were completely different. The director seemed to give him complete independence, allowing all that from which usually with all his might dares the artists: the leader of the Moscow Art Theater speaks in different voices, jokes and flirts. It is impossible to suspect either Bogomolov or Tabakov of the inability to recognize a tune, who have collaborated far from the first time. The director and the actor deliberately remove archaic tools from the dusty bins in order to play the role of the play’s worst hero: a conformist pretending to be crazy for security reasons.Apparently, for Bogomolov there is no better example of unfreedom than a bad theater – and Tabakov’s hero, the only one who emerged victorious from this story, causes him much more disgust than the dragon.
Hello, I’m a dragon
In the 1988 film adaptation of Mark Zakharov, the dragon was terrifying, funny, eccentric and endlessly charming. He would fit perfectly into Marvel comics or action films about Bond (even Oleg Yankovsky’s make-up copied Ernst Blofield, the main villain of Bond – the one with the cat).
Zakharov aestheticized evil, probably in an attempt to unravel its attractiveness. Bogomolov’s evil is commonplace. If the hero of Yankovsky resembled Mephistopheles, then the character of Igor Vernik is more like a philistine trait who visited Ivan Karamazov. His dragon is not an omnipotent Fuhrer, but a boring guy in a jacket. A family man, everywhere he drags his wife and child with him (a witty theatrical incarnation of three-headedness). He comes to the archivist in a neighborly way, like a house manager, though not wearing slippers, and casually holds out his hand to Lancelot: hello, I’m a dragon.
The performer of the title role is not made up for Blofield, but for Brezhnev: a swollen face, bags under the eyes, fluffy eyebrows. The transformation of the media actor is reminiscent of Hollywood experiments with the image: Wernick, as it turned out, has no less self-irony than Tilda Swinton, who played an 80-year-old grandmother in love in the Grand Budapest Hotel. The director’s reason is clear: the worse, the more solemn the monster, the more we are ready to forgive his passive victims. And he doesn’t need this.
Wait for me and I’ll be back
In the story of Fazil Iskander “Rabbits and boas” there is an extremely important observation put into the mouth of the wisest rabbit named Ponderer.Victory over tyranny is not an end, but only a means to an end; the mistake of all liberators is in the confusion between the means and the goal: “Each of them, carried away by his noble task, involuntarily considers it as the final victory over world evil.” There are many intersection points between Eugene Schwartz’s “Dragon” and this text, written 40 years apart, and most importantly, the general conclusion: defeating any noxious reptile is not enough to become a free man (or rabbit).Indeed, according to the same Ponderer, “the task of saving rabbits is infinite in time.”
Bogomolov’s “Dragon” criticizes the concept of redemption, which is fundamental to Christian culture: there is no such feat that will end evil forever. The director has already discussed the atoning sacrifice in the Vilnius production of “My Dad – Agamemnon” based on “Iphigenia in Aulis” and other tragedies of Euripides (but there this issue had nothing to do with political struggle). Like Iphigenia, Lancelot is associated with Christ: during the performance, Bogomolov often quotes Western religious painting and, for greater clarity, even adds the actor’s face to the picture of the crucifixion.Another (synonymous) archetype, tried on for the hero, is the Soviet soldier-liberator: here is a soldier’s greatcoat, and “The Cranes Are Flying,” and the voice of Konstantin Simonov, reading “Wait for Me.”
In Bogomolov’s performances, death is not necessarily permanent: the killed heroes return as if nothing had happened (the director even had a beautiful theoretical foundation on this score). So the dragon, who is considered dead, is in no hurry to die: he changes his costume and make-up to serve the newly-made president – the former burgomaster, who declared himself the winner of the snake (presumably, in fact, the dragon controls the president, and not vice versa).The hit song from the TV series “The Thaw” performed by the dead monster and Elsa is an extremely evil taunt to the nostalgic for the times of the dragon.
In general, it is not surprising that the returning Lancelot is met at the city gates by none other than a dragon. In this final scene, Bogomolov gives the antagonist a monologue from Nietzsche: “O Zarathustra, here is a big city; you have nothing to look for here, and you can lose everything. ” In the original, the preacher replied: “Where you can no longer love, there you need to – pass by!” And again: “Woe to this big city! – And I would like to see a pillar of fire, in which it will burn! ” In Bogomolov’s work, Lancelot-Zarathustra is in fact sending a flame to the city: the “Dragon” ends in the glow of a screen fire.In a word, if for the first time the knight came as the messiah, in the finale he agrees with Pushkin’s Faust. Presumably, the director too.
90,000 Interview with Alexey Alekhin, editor-in-chief of the poetry magazine “Arion”
The first poetry magazine in Russia “Arion” is celebrating its 20th anniversary. Its founder and editor-in-chief, Aleksey Alekhin, told Gazeta.Ru about the role a literary magazine plays today, why it accepts only manuscripts and how poetry festivals harm young poets.
– The magazine celebrates its 20th anniversary in a completely different literary world when compared to 1994. Tell us how the magazine was created.
– Somewhere in the mid-1980s, I met a Finnish young poet. During the conversation, it turned out that as many as three poetry magazines are being published in Finland. It shocked me. With all due respect to Finland, I don’t know a single great Finnish poet, except for the unknown author of Kalevala. And in the great poetic power of Russia, not a single one comes out.When it came to publication in 1993, I went to the library and discovered that there had never been a poetry professional magazine in Russia at all.
– A magazine in Russia usually lives for two or three years, how did Arion manage to exist for 20 years?
– This is really the oldest literary magazine that emerged after the scoop ordered to live long. Here and luck, of course, and just persistence. When I die, they will release, if there is a favorable arrangement of the stars, the complete collection of my works in 20 volumes: a volume of poetry, a volume of prose, a volume of criticism and 17 volumes of selected estimates and petitions… Well, but seriously, then, I think, since the magazine exists, then it is needed.
– We have always had a lot of literary magazines, why was it necessary to publish a poetry one?
– The prose writer, and even with a name, does not really need a magazine now: he wrote a novel – bring it to the publisher, it will be published. But when you’re young, you don’t write a novel right away, you write stories. You cannot carry the story to the publishing house – only to the magazine. Nobody needs poetry there at all. Poetry is art in art, its quintessence.We have a professional magazine. Of course, we are also read by amateurs, but still 99% are those who write poetry themselves. This is normal: the game of chess is also watched by only those who know how to move e2-e4.
Magazines today are almost the only thing that unites authors and makes a single literary process.
That this is necessary can be seen with the naked eye. Here, for example, is the problem of poetic youth: among 20-30 year olds there are capable, but practically no established poets. There can be many reasons for this.But one of them is the Internet, which, contrary to expectations, not only connects people, but also divides: it creates the illusion of community, “literary community” – on six hundred square meters.
After all, literature is a tree, the new poet does not work from scratch. Our workshop already has Homer, Catullus, Pushkin, Derzhavin, Fet and all the others. And the new that arises must still be included in this system. It can push off from it, throw predecessors from the steamer of our time – but for this, you first need to enter it.The Internet is extremely democratic, and art is essentially undemocratic. Democratic art is an areal one: splint, booth, ladies’ novel. And high art is always hierarchical and aristocratic in spirit. By the way, the real aristocracy, political and then monetary, admitted it willy-nilly. Look what is written on the first page of Don Quixote – thanks to the Duke of Bexar.
By the way, this duke was a famous junk, but he helped Cervantes.
The network pretends that there is no hierarchy, and enables the army of graphomaniacs to post their opuses, say, on “Poems.RU”. It seems to them that now they are present in literature – on a par with Chukhontsev, with Salimon, with Gandlevsky, whose poems are also posted – but in the “Journal Hall”. Or a company of friends of five is formed – they read to each other and praise. It seems to them that they have created their own literature. You know, in my childhood every Moscow courtyard had its first strongman. But if he got into some youth Olympiad, it usually turned out that he was not the first strong man, but no one at all.
Ideally, a magazine is such an “Olympiad”.The place where professional conversation takes place from room to room on a professional level. Where opinions are exchanged, assessments are given. Where new names come to light, and without fawning, as is the custom today. By the way, these endless present-day premium flirting with young people is also not good for them. Although the genesis is clear: on a par with the hobby of youth fashion, when people well over 60 dress and want to look like 20-year-olds.
– Is your magazine conservative?
– Judging by the fact that for 20 years now some have said that we are too traditional, and others that we are too avant-garde, we are simply quite broad-minded.By the way, here you need to understand that novelty and avant-garde are not the same thing. Sorry, but the avant-garde that is commonly referred to is well over a century old. The most recent wave of the Russian poetic avant-garde, the “Lianozovo school” – Genrikh Sapgir, Igor Kholin – we found, they were all published in “Arion”. But they have been gone for a long time. And a new one – not declaring, but producing – did not arise. Which, generally speaking, is normal: after the aged avant-garde, something outwardly more “traditional” turns out to be new.And this does not mean lack of novelty. For example, the flourishing of short emotional and philosophical poems written by Vladimir Salimon, Vera Pavlova, Yuliy Khomenko, Felix Chechik, Yuri Kazarin, and Gleb Shulpyakov can be called a new bright phenomenon of the last ten to fifteen years. At a superficial glance, they seem very simple and therefore cause surprise, and even rejection for some. In fact, they are not at all simple. And the complexity of perception is the usual sign of the new.
– Has your magazine changed fundamentally over the years?
– Of course, along with poetry, which I just spoke about.But the magazine does not only poetry, criticism creates it. Over the years, someone has left, the last of the old guard still remain, but they write less. For a moment it seemed that there was no worthy change. Fortunately, a whole galaxy of young people has grown up, and this is a miracle. After all, real literary criticism is service. Months of labor for a penny wage, as well as poetry. The only place for literary criticism to exist is in a thick literary magazine.
– What about the media?
– No, just a magazine.In the media, criticism is informational, like advertising. You know, there is an advertisement inviting to drink such and such a brand of beer, and there is an informational one, they say, there is a dental clinic nearby, shoe repair. We clean both of them out of our mailboxes every morning; the second is at least some use. These critical notes in the media are similar to her: the author is such and such, the book is about that … But all this is fluent, brief, it is impossible to say anything serious about the book and the author there.
– What about the analysis?
– What kind of analysis is there! The analysis of one poetic poem sometimes takes a printed page! Analysis in the media boils down to the conclusion: “Actual poetry”, or: “It is interesting to use profanity”, or: “A touching statement about Russia and its small homeland” – depending on the type of publication.This is not real criticism. Serious analytical criticism is a conversation about poetry as such and determining the place of a given work in it; about the work of this author, his evolution and prospects, but you never know what else, the whole world. You will not find this in any newspaper. Only in the magazine. It is possible that in electronic form, although I personally prefer paper: for articles it does not really matter, but verses in electronic form are lost. It is even important for them what paper they are printed on, what font, what width of the margin…
– Can’t the text be independent?
– No. Here’s an example from another area – theater. Do you care which hall to watch in? No, it doesn’t matter. If you move an opera performance from the Bolshoi Theater to the basement, it will die. And vice versa, if you start to watch a performance, say, of the Pogrebnichko Theater (meaning the OKOLO theater, which is directed by Yuri Pogrebnichko), in gilded chairs, it will also perish. Everything should be in its place. The appearance of the poem is not an empty phrase.You know, any poetry editor will tell you: leafing through a pack of hopeless poems and suddenly you see one thing – you haven’t even read it yet, but you already see: it’s some kind of different. And often just it turns out to be interesting. Well, the poems on the Internet relate to poems as such in much the same way as the weather forecast to the weather itself: “It is snowing” – and you go out and catch the snowflake with your tongue!
– Is that why your website says: “Texts sent by e-mail are not considered (use regular mail)”?
– Firstly, therefore.And secondly, email corrupts. The author must select poems, print them, fold them in a certain order, put them in an envelope, send them to a magazine or bring them to the editorial office. And that – I mean selection and selection – is also part of the creative process. And so every graphomaniac presses a button … and all his trash heap is on my desktop!
– How do you feel about when poems leave magazines for the theater or on the concert stage?
– This does not apply to poetry as an art in any way, although sometimes, very rarely, it can be other art.If I have to listen to a new poem, do you know what I do? I mentally translate it into letters on paper. Literary reading is a crutch for those who cannot read poetry themselves (and this is also a kind of creativity), and in this sense it can be useful. Theatricalization helps to penetrate, get involved. Ideally, a person who has listened to a poem should pick up a book and start reading.
– You wrote in your essay “A Poet Without a Reader” that in Russia, at least temporarily, nobody needs poetry.Along with this, there is an opinion that over the past few years poetry has become relevant again, there has been an increase in interest in it.
– No. There is interest in exactly what you are talking about, in its lightweight forms. And I’m not even sure that this is good for poetry itself. Young poets en masse participate in festivals. They came, read poems, clapped them. What is most valuable in poetry is not immediately perceived, and what is successful when perceived directly should be instantly perceived, outwardly effective.Real art is always deep. After all, I know the fate of these young poets: he comes to one edition, to another, they poke his nose into flaws and, in addition, do not print. Then he comes to the next festival, shouts something, to heighten the effect he will insert an obscene word, which is always great. The people clap. What is more? What else to learn (in the sense of teaching yourself)?
There are plenty of such seduced young poets.
They remember poetry concerts of the sixties, stadiums.It seemed to everyone that they went there for the sake of poetry, but they went for the most part for the sake of something else: poetry replaced both the rock concerts that did not exist then, and the political club. Poetry as an art is much more hermetic, and there is nothing wrong with that. A couple of hundred people all over the world understand theoretical physics; nevertheless, it is the mainspring of modern civilization.
– To what extent is it generally necessary to separate these things? Maybe there is a living poetic process in areal art?
– Maybe.But it is difficult to admit it, because such art itself never rises high, it has no incentive for this. Tynyanov has a well-known argument that any major literature includes marginal genres. There will be a serious poet, and he will somehow use it. But he will come from the outside. Well, from a human point of view, of course, these poetic role-playing games are better than cockfighting without rules.
– That is, in the literature, the only serious filter is still a thick magazine?
– No, the literary community as a whole.Journals are just one good tool. As a result, of course, time itself will put everyone in their place. And who will be where, it will be known fifty years after our death. Two generations must pass. In the 1960s – 1970s, there were very famous poets, whom few remember now. And the most valuable today is what seemed then not too noticeable, or even did not go beyond the limits of the typewriter.
– What status do you think the poet is now in? Doesn’t it feel like calling yourself a poet is a little awkward today?
– Calling yourself a poet has always been embarrassing, it’s like calling yourself a genius.As for status – who is a poet or a writer? I understand the sales manager. But here’s what’s interesting: despite the fact that literature is not in demand today, for some reason, many government officials or simply rich people write, seek the publication of their essays, order reviews on them, strive to add the word “writer” to their posts and titles, and even that better “poet” … A paradox? Or maybe in this pragmatic age, deep down, everyone understands that both the writer and the poet are the real spiritual elite of society? And everyone wants to join the elite.That is why they are trying to demolish all the gates. Here is the answer to the question why many young poets do not go to magazines at all, shouting that they do not need the magazine, that this institute itself is outdated. The magazines are precisely the gates, wide, but not a walk-through courtyard. No, we will demolish everything and run. Well run.
