    Ahead By A Century

    Gord Downie really did say it best, didn’t he? "No dress rehearsal - this is our life". Apt words from an inspiring man, but that’s been the proverbial rub for most humans throughout all of time - we don’t get a dress rehearsal, and opening night starts before we’re even aware that the curtain has come up. But what if we could peek at the script, see the plot twists of our stories coming? Many have claimed this ability, but have any of them proven it? Is there such a thing as... a Secret Path?

    Hard To Swallow

    Hard To Swallow

    You are what you eat - or so they say. And everyone has their own preferences... some might even give an odd look to those who actually *enjoy* Marmite or Vodka (heaven forfend both at once)! But how should we look upon those whose tastes are a little less... conventional? Those who literally can’t stop eating...

    Seeing Double

    Seeing Double

    People love to share things - and most things are better shared! You go out for a meal and get the sharing platter, a round of drinks, and the bread - to share. You watch a film, read a book, or see a tv show you love and say to your friends “You’ve *got* to try it”! We share things because we want other people to see what we’re seeing. But what if the things we’re seeing aren’t really there... and our friends start seeing them too? Stare into the mirror too long, and you may end up seeing double.

    Up In Flames

    Up In Flames

    Fire - to destroy all you’ve done. Fire - to end all you’ve become. Morbid words in a rather jaunty tune, but it’s true; fire has that capacity. It’s been with us from the dawn of time, and has been so central to basically all of human existence since that time that how we came to possess it has been the subject of myths and legends from all over the world and across history. Some say that we stole it from the gods - others that some higher being gifted it to us. But what if the fire was inside us, all along...

    We Built This City (Part 2)

    We Built This City (Part 2)

    Way down deep in the jungle, there lies a city of such unimaginable splendour that to even conceive of it is to dream one’s wildest dreams. There also lies a wealth of danger, tropical diseases, wild animals, and an endless sea of rainforest. Would you brave the latter to find the former? Or, dream and speculate about what treasures might be hiding away? How about both?
