8961_9_19_2014_1.gifFirst timers’ corner
Hey, Ed!
This is my first letter to you. I love everything about your magazine and seriously, this is the only magazine around that’s fun to read. Anyway, I absolutely adore the poetry section. Just a bit curious though, do you pay for poetry? Like how much? Haha… it’s a bit awkward but I still want to know. ....

8963_9_19_2014_1.gifThere are times when, while we are sitting alone or are doing something, we feel that something might happen - and it does. Some people call it a ‘premonition’, but there are many others who believe that it’s simply our sixth sense kicking in, or a gut feeling. Those interested in parapsychology prefer to call it Extrasensory Perception or ESP, instead of sixth sense.

Well, the truth is that human beings have many more ‘senses’ than the known five. We neglect some of these because they are, at times, insignificant and often don’t come into play in the course of our normal lives. ....

8964_9_19_2014_1.gifUmm… We would be behind times if we ignore the importance of social media and our page on Facebook is a testament to the fact that we know how important Facebook is for you all out there. So, we have decided to dedicate a page, once a month, to what our secret Facebook group is up to. The idea, we would admit, came from a member of our Facebook group who has decided to present a critique under the byline ‘Skeeter Know-all’. Here goes… ....

8965_9_19_2014_1.gifI hear something buzzing but I fail to understand what the sound is. It grows louder and louder. In discomfort, I toss in my bed, until my sister shakes me awake, and asks me to turn off the alarm. I do so, but only to set it to ring again fifteen minutes later. After three intervals, I finally force myself out of the bed. With longing, I look at the cosy bed. Yet, I move on as there is lots of work to be done.

It is early. The sun has not yet risen. I say my prayers and then enter the dining room. I turn the heating on, and sit down amidst heaps of papers and books scattered on the table and the floor. ....

A blade of grass
By Kahlil Gibran
Said a blade of grass to an autumn leaf, “You make such a noise falling! You scatter all my winter dreams.”

Said the leaf indignant, “Low-born and low-dwelling! Songless, peevish thing! You live not in the upper air and you cannot tell the sound of singing.” ....

Cheek to Cheek by Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga: Collaboration album consisting of jazz standards, including ‘Anything Goes’, ‘I Can’t Give You Anything but Love’, and ‘Nature Boy’. ....


Dear innocent Girl,
My sympathies are with you. Since you were madly in love, you did not mind giving yourself to your lover and that was your biggest mistake. I wish someone had stopped you from taking this major step. He knows that now you cannot go anywhere else; therefore, he is taking advantage of your situation. ....

8969_9_19_2014_1.gifStern warning

Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently scold the child.

Smiling sweetly, the Sunday school teacher said, “Johnny, when I was a child, I was told that if I made ugly faces, it would freeze and I would stay like that.” ....
