The Voices in Our Heads

An ice cream parlour. Do you eat ice cream in the winter? I do. We need a treat now and again. This issue is a real treat: beauty, and odd sightings from around the planet, and the even odder thoughts in our heads. We've got it all, music and stories and artwork and humour and poetry and cinema.

It's a good time of the year to catch up on your reading. Visit Peer Review and see what other Researchers have been reading up on. If you're in lockdown, while away your downtime by doing some virtual visiting with us.

Wade into some of the on-site controversies, such as 'how deadly are flesh-eating turtles?' and 'are earworms bad for our mental health?' Start your own.

Don't forget, too, to keep reading the 'Holes in History' stories. From early Russia to medieval England, cozy Vienna to wartime France to frontier America, there's a lot to take in. Bookmark your tales and follow along day to day. Let the writers know you're reading.

In the meantime, here's what you can find in this issue:

    Grazing Calves, by DG.
  • Amazing natural beauty: mountains and vistas of all kinds, endearing creatures, spooky cats in garages.
  • Human-made puzzles, like unusual windows and strange signs. Join in the discussion of hopscotch as kabbalistic mystery.
  • A quiz, a challenging photo, and some food for thought. Also cinema.
  • A thrilling account of the dangers of berry-picking with toddlers, by Caiman Raptor Elk.
  • A photo essay written in a parking lot. An inspirational dog explorer.
  • Prose, poetry, the ever-popular graphic novel form, and cartoons a-plenty.

Enjoy yourselves here, be safe, wherever you are. Wear masks. Send Stuff. And have a good week!

Quote of the Week: In Western philosophy, knowledge has been conceived of primarily as an ocular function. To know is to see and to see is the inception of thought.
