    The festive seasonís been and gone
    didnít see the fireworks
    your letter
    the most beautiful words
    at the right time
    a promise stamped
    on an envelope of hope

    You said
    if you should ever find yourself alone
    when youíre old
    beloved troubadour
    and youíve sung your song
    come and live with me
    my home is your home

    The greatest gifts
    you wonít need to unwrap
    when a heartís laid bare
    conviction no longer
    under lock and key
    the toll of drowning
    no longer on the rise

    You say
    if you should ever find yourself alone
    when youíre old
    beloved troubadour
    and youíve sung your song
    come and live with me
    my home is your home

    I walk past the wishing well
    a lights spectacular
    the owl with a rotating head
    the kangaroo on the roof
    my travels have brought me here
    I donít miss a thing
    this is proof I am living

    You say
    if you should ever find yourself alone
    when youíre old
    my beloved troubadour
    and youíve sung your song
    come and live with me
    my home is your home

    Above all remember kindness
    gratitude for small mercies
    the open door
    when doors were closed
    we see who we really are
    when the lightís turned off
    what we reach for

    • Re: Should our troops be re engaged in Iraq?
      by Isobel Blackthorn
      Iraqi Civil War



      As Iraq breaks down into civil war our Prime Minister is making noises that we may have to take part in an 'allied' resolve to interfere again.

      What do you think?
      I think we should never have taken part first time round. Either the US and its allies are profoundly stupid in that they could not envisage the mayhem they would cause given the initial conditions, or profoundly clever, since last I heard of the $2 Trillion the US spent in Iraq, 90...

      by Mick Pacholli



      The kitchen is the heart of a house where you feel safe to sit and eat. But to your surprise, today, we will tell you that the kitchen is the biggest source of bacterial contamination. Amid a global pandemic taking care of kitchen hygiene to prevent any contamination from the food brought from outside is also imperative.

    • Cassandra by Kathryn Gossow
      by Isobel Blackthorn



      Kathryn Gossow is a masterful storyteller who displays great insight and sensitivity in her handling of difficult themes. The result, her debut novel Cassandra, is an extraordinary and engaging coming of age tale.


      On a remote farm in Queensland, Cassie Shultz feels useless. Her perfect brother Alex has an uncanny ability to predict the weather, and the fortunes of the entire family hinge upon his forecasts. However, her own gift for prophecy remains frustratingly...
