Thoughts Take Flight

Snowy Field, by Superfrenchie.

It's still snowing in a lot of places. Except France, of course, because they're magic, and South Africa, because one, it's summer, and two, it hardly ever snows there, anyway. As I write this, I look out the window at the falling snow. The hourly weather forecast runs thus:

'Snow. Snow. Snow showers. Intermittent snow. Light snow. Snow flurries. Scattered snow.'

As Superfrenchie says, it's my fault for being located in the frozen north.

Spring, we long for you. In the meantime, let's have fun in this issue by finding every crazy thing in the world to photograph, talk about, and puzzle over. You're going to enjoy this.

Here are some of the highlights:
    A hero medal? by FWR
  • Birds, birds, birds. Birds flying. Birds in trees. Birds in montages. Bird impersonators. Enjoy.
  • A new Create theme. It's about heroism. Freewayriding starts us off with some thoughts on the subject. Please send in your contributions. Meanwhile, Paulh has some memories to share.
  • Armchair time travellers rejoice! We have wonderful reports from the past. 'Wonderful', of course, in the original sense of the word: you'll be amazed, and wonder how in the world any of this ever happened.
  • Really, really strange things. A mysterious message in the snow. Ice used as a Rorschach test. Puzzling trees and boats in weird places and some unusual but tasty-looking food.
  • Humour and ongoing stories. Cinema to suit the mood. Me ranting on about something, which the readers will then completely ignore in favour of whatever random thoughts they choose to put down (I suspect automatic writing is taking place here).

We'll be back next week with more Stuff. (Send more Stuff!) Keep warm, stay safe, and remember: your living room set may come from Ikea, but you can furnish your head in any style you choose.

Quote of the Week: OK, just a bit of advice from an Alaskan to those who aren't used to seeing icicles...

1. Don't stand under them

2. Ddo NOT lick them. they are made of water dripping off your roof. Your roof is covered in dirt and bird poop.
