Birds, Beasts, and Humans

No, those aren't go-away birds. Willem's got the dope on them. Go-away birds say 'go away', at least in Afrikaans, and we don't say that. We say, 'Come on in and stay awhile.' We've got a worldwide tour for you: a church in France, an unbelievable tree in South Africa, a film from Iran, junk in space. . . you get the picture.

Pictures? We got 'em. Cartoons, photos, and real artwork. Inspiration for your next writing venture. And once you're inspired, Solnushka has a plea: get involved in the November journal-writing project. She'll tell you how.

Halloween is still coming. Have you bought your pumpkin yet? Do you know where your fangs are? Have you sent in your piece for the Post? A wink is as good as a nod to a vampire bat. . .

Deke's back on the Thames, Minorvogonpoet's following a goddess to a temple in an odd place, and the Prof and jwf, as usual, aren't sure where they are.

We hope you know where your towels are – it's quite a trip, and you've got your tickets.

Ignore that parrot. It swears.
