Poetry: ‘My Final Judgement’ by Mark Nielson

Voice of a Poet: Ideas make the world go round

change the world

Ideas make the world go round Today, I am more than ever convinced that ideas and imagination are more valuable than oil and gas, and I’m not talking just about shares, but about that most important human segment, which is spirituality.

Storytellers: ‘Torn and Tattered Tracks’ by Dean Jevons

_by_Cruzw

_by_Cruzw As I walk these torn and tattered tracks I imagine a time of days forgotten. I imagine towns folk walking to church on a cold winter’s day as the train passes them by. I imagine everyone waving to each other with a big smile. If they are strangers, they’ll soon be friends Off in the distance I saw a town store which is frequently visited by the locals.
