Little Zooey Magazine is here. 

This has been a much-anticipated project for me to release, and I'm incredibly grateful to have the opportunity to reach another audience of Zooey Magazine: Parents.

In this era of Web 2.0, we are all very much accustomed to attaining what we want with a click of a button. And on top of that, our children can achieve the same. I think new generations are gradually drawing further and further away from emotions of anticipation and excitement, because it is temporarily attained through pixels. Everyone is growing up so much faster in this period, that we forget to just take things slow... absorb life around us, and allow for our childhood lives to be full of wanderlust, curiosity, and beauty.

While it may seem ironic that I would be using this online platform to encourage more simplistic means of living, my method is very much relevant. I want to reach out to the world with inspirational stories written by parents and parents-to-be, and to build a community of families who desire the same things.

Little Zooey promises to never post more than one article a day in order to clear your feeds of trivial content. Our stories would never be dictated and inhibited by advertisement sales, and would never be short of authenticity.

I believe that a life lived simply is beautiful. I believe in the power of learning through books. I believe in the joy of a playground. I believe in the wanderlust of childhood and parenthood. I believe in communal living and I hope that you and your families will think so too. 

Thanks for visiting Little Zooey and joining our movement. 

Love, Lucia Tran (Editor-in-Chief of Zooey Magazine and Little Zooey)
