"The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution."
~ Paul Cezanne
At Cezanne's Carrot, we believe that day has arrived!
Cezanne's Carrot publishes short fiction and creative nonfiction that celebrates the universe and the human experience in uplifting, revolutionary ways. At Cezanne's Carrot, words and images explore the higher aspects of human nature, the integration of inner and outer worlds, and the exciting threshold where the familiar meets the unknown. We offer a positive, enlightening literary experience–and support the growing genre of literature that openly explores spiritual, transformational, visionary, and metaphysical themes.
Many people have asked us over the years why we chose the name Cezanne's Carrot. Actually, we think of it as a gift from the universe. Here's how it happened:
Early in the process of founding Cezanne's Carrot, we met and discussed several names. None seemed right, so we decided to wait and let the perfect name appear. A few days later, Barbara happened to read an email from one of her many New Age mailing lists. It contained the quote from Paul Cezanne that you can see on our home page: "The day is coming when a single carrot, freshly observed, will set off a revolution." Barbara sent the quote on with a "wild hair" suggestion that the journal be called Cezanne's Carrot. We immediately knew it was perfect. The tie to the quote brings in the serious spirit of what we are trying to accomplish here, and the name is playful enough to also bring in laughter and joy.
(Another bit of trivia: the original email containing the quote also included a photo of a very cute and apparently enlightened chinchilla clutching a bit of carrot in its paws. Sadly, we decided not to use this picture.)
