In the depths of the Indian jungles the tall grass is softly parted by its motions. It comes up
almost silently, with only a soft crunch of the dry leaves that litter the ground. A chital
swiftly lifts its head from grazing, nostrils flared and ears twitching desperately in an effort
to detect any threat. A thick calm moves over the forest and the birds go silent. It bursts
through the undergrowth raging through the forest like wildfire. A wild peacock sounds the
alarm and the tranquillity is severed and havoc breaks through the grass. A flurry of hooves
and beating of feathers bring up the dust and heat. In the sun’s light there is a bright flash
of ruby as rapid as lightning. And suddenly there is silent in the forest again.

I stir in the warmth of the morning light filtering through the lace curtains.
There is a subtle, audible breeze that passes the warm air over my bare
skin. I open my eyes against the light and he is there. He is lying peacefully
on his side, his eyelashes casting a shadow under his closed eyes. His
peacefulness sends a wave of relaxation through me and the corners of my
mouth turn up slightly into a small smile. I pass the white sheet over our
heads. It lifts up and floats back down gently over us and we are cocooned
in the present. I can smell the soft scent of the fresh sheets and I breath in
deeply to soak up the fragrance. As though he can feel my gaze, he stirs
mildly. He shifts in his position ever so slightly and I can see his nostrils
widen. He smells me softly, he feels the sheet over us and a sleepy arm
reaches out and draws me closely to him. He softly resettles in his sleep. I
will remember this morning often. This will be my daydream

Her step skipped and her muscles twitched excitedly as her eyes darted from
sight to sight, soaking in the collective delight of the fair ground patrons.
The warm night air, the kind only felt in the midst of a thick summer, caused
her cheeks to flush. Scents of lavender from the fields beyond mixed in with
the citrus fruits hanging from the lemonade stand. The warm golden hue it
up the chaotic scene in the midst of the surrounding night - like a new
season or secret garden where the excitement and anticipation sharpen the
senses and increase the heart’s beating.
The bare light bulbs boarding the fairgrounds flickered with intensity and she
felt the same electricity and excitement pass through her. Her gaze was
drawn up to the ferris wheel, its lazy motion and slowly swaying carts filled
with excited children pointing out to distant scenes and lovers embracing,
encased in their own world. The whirring repetition of the off key tunes of
the side show songs blended into a intoxicating dance and swirled around
her head. She felt her hand gather her hem and she began to swirl around in
circles, carelessly humming to the songs, her senses drowned in the wonder
of the night carniva

To me our love means days at home in socks and old clothes. It means discovering new
films and being creatively excited with each other. It’s watching your face amused as I
dance unguarded to the radio in the kitchen. Love is walking the supermarket isles and
choosing orange juice together. It’s in the way you hug me from behind as I cook on a work
night. It’s hiding in our apartment to surprise you with a birthday cake after your long
uneventful day at work. Love is reading by your side in bed and a spontaneous long kiss as
we pass in the hallway. Love is your comfort when I’ve broken something special or when
you run me a bath. Love is a long hug when I’m feeling down and the sky is grey. Love is in
the days we waste in bed together. It’s in your offer to carry the heavier bags or tie my
shoelaces when I broke my arm. Love is finding a café you know I’ll love or hanging your
arm around the back of my chair at a dinner party. It’s in covering me with blankets when
I’m sick and letting me have the window side on the train. Love is those days you’re away
and all I think of is you.

She sat at the wooden kitchen table, an angular shaft of light streaming in from the window
parting the shadows away from her face. She sat contentedly and listened to the merry
refrain of the birds outside waking up for the day. The teapot slowly stirred into life on the
stove and her hands moved in calm and thoughtful motions as she worked her needle
through her fabric. She basked in the therapeutic quality of the quiet and made an extra
measure to enjoy it. The teapot whirred insistently and she put down the needle and poplin,
smoothing her hands over her skirt and she stood. Pouring out the hot water, she watched
as it infused with her tea, creating patterns at the bottom of the cup. Warming her hands
around the mug, she leaned in the frame of the door, looking out onto the morning, letting
the sun soak through and the stillness move through her.

changed gears and roared with laughter as the speed thrust them forward. His sheepskin

He moved along the shadows as the drains spewed out thick clouds of steam, the distant

large raindrops that dripped from the tarnished drain pipes running along the roofs of the
battered shops. He knew his way around Chinatown well and flittered between alleyways,
moving past men wheeling crates of goods and bustling kitchen staff smoking at the back of
restaurants. He found the door he was looking for and silently slipped into the brick facade
out of the rain. The noises from the busy street were instantly muted with the thump of the
door behind him. The smell of perfume instantly hit his nose and the aura of the place
flooded back like a nostalgic dream. He felt his way along the darkened corridor flanked with
maroon velvet curtains. He reached the door and knocked timidly. He heard a shuffle and
soft movements and the door clicked ajar.

Many moons ago, when the forests were wide and the nights were clear people told the
story of the Neelam Nilgai, a large antelope that shone blue with sapphire horns. It would
graze on the grasslands in the light of a full moon and people would wait up in the night to
catch a glimpse of this mysterious creature. It was said to be so beautiful that if you were to
look into its eyes you would feel a tear run down your face. On rare occasions when a Blue
Moon occurred, the Neelam Nilgai would shed its horns spilling sapphires all across the
fields. The next morning people would run out to their pastures to try to spot the sapphires
sparkling blue brilliance among the soil. But the villagers did not plunder the land and sell

and a rich harvest. Even now, many years after children still keep an eye open a blue

""In a gentle way, you can shake the world.""
As the story goes, the son of the rose was born on a wet spring morning just as the birds
arose and the fog lifted from the earth. His birth into the world was silent, the petals
opening as he gained strength and pushed them back. He spent his childhood in his rose,
playing with the grasshoppers and bees that would visit him. However much he loved his
rose and his life among the wild flowers, he desired voyage and exploration. He explained
his woes to his insect friends and each would listen and say they understood, but each were
free to leave and explore on the wing, not trapped by the tall stem and the petals of his
rose. One afternoon he met a butterfly who was travelling past. The butterfly agreed to take
the boy to the next meadow. He jumped on her back and held tight onto her antennae.
They flew through the wind and she spiralled around the tops of the trees. It was the most
exhilarating experience of his life. The boy and the butterfly fell in love and travelled
together on many adventures. So next time you see a butterfly, try to look carefully for the
boy holding on to her back, riding high with adventure.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
His chest is heaving with exhaustion as he realises these might be his last breaths. Spread
out on the muddy ground, he looks at his hand covered in dirt and grass clutching his rifle.
All around him he can hear the echoed sounds of war, falling away under his heavy gasps.
He suddenly feels the cold penetrate with sodden clothes and sees the morning mist rising
from the earth. He feels a shadow cloak him as his enemy approaches. He turns his head,
staring into their eyes, still gasping for breath. The figure stops. The two adversaries study
each other’s faces, looking for a sign, a moment that tells them which move to play next.
Abruptly his opponent turns and runs. His neck still craning around, he watches the figure
slowly disappear and suddenly he is gone with the smell of smoke still thick in the air.
