Nature Knows No Borders
Jenny Wright

Early morning and dawn is beginning. I'm walking along the beach, breathing in whiffs of sea spray.  White Rock’s’ lights are fading and ocean and skies turn blue against the backdrop of a glowing sunrise.
Arizona Inn

Jane Cassie

Out Like Flynn

James Campion
Or How To Go From Inauguration to Constitutional Crisis in 25 Days -
For the record, I whole-heartedly agree with the president’s defense that his administration is not in chaos, we’re more into the territory of outright mayhem now.
Sorry - No 'Do-overs'

James Campion

Trump is in Vladimir Putin’s back pocket, diplomacy is alien to him, he’s afraid of Steve Bannon, and he had no interest in divesting himself of any of his current business dealings ...
How Should One Live in Africa?
Adeojo Kolawole Adeyemi Hannibal

You must have heard about the clamour for change that is almost turning sour in the mouths of citizens, what you have not heard is the hunger wracking the very soul of the masses.
Special Alliance

'Spain vs UK'
Brexit Mania - 'many, if not most, in Europe consider it the worst disaster to hit both the UK and Europe since the II World War'
'Alternative Facts'

The Wild Reeds
My View Through 'The Wild Reeds'

When I first saw The Wild Reeds (TWR), last summer on NPR's online music series called the Tiny Desk Concerts - I was an instant fan.
From 36 to 63
Tyrel Nelson

One of the first things I did after turning 36 was pull a hamstring. In an attempt to prove to myself and my softball teammates that I hadn’t lost a step, I tried to shift into a higher gear while rounding the bases. I ended up a peg leg instead.
Crossroads, homeward.
Journey of a Brazilian Babalawo
Lakunle Jaiyesimi

REVIEWS Film & Books
Raj City

Abigail George

Youth excites me. The youth in men. The youth in women. I have to hold onto the fact that all of life, human life, humanity, flora and fauna, and the lost and found is a happy gift.
Valentine's Day Mascara
Martin Green

“You don’t bring me flowers any more.”

Martin Green

Bud had come for lunch sometime in September.  He’d seemed fine then.  At their lunches, they’d usually have a report that one or another of their old tennis group had passed away, but he assumed Bud would be there forever.

Helen Reynolds review

For a movie that has a monster acting as a metaphor for greed, it’s surprising just how engaging it is to watch ...
Directed by Garth Davis
with Dev Patel, Rooney Mara & Nicole Kidman
Helen Reynolds Review

with Ryan Gosling & Emma Stone
Director Damien Chazelle
Helen Reynolds review

Hollywood has fallen in love again. Five years on from The Artist, a beautiful nostalgic nod to cinema history, here we are in the land of bygone times.

Great fleas have little fleas upon their backs to bite 'em and little fleas have lesser fleas ...ad infinitum - Augustus de Morgan
