The arts have an exquisite capacity to engender moments of keen understanding—moments that can happen across time, culture, and distance, coalescing these into a distillate spark of acute discernment.  As such, Quiddity has deep regard for and is profoundly grateful to its audience and its contributors, without whom our charge would be without quiddity.
