Hints of January

Stories in the January edition.

Taylor's Travels are true accounts of one man's dream to visit USA. He lands at JFK airport, excited, and with camera in hand, proceeds to take photographs of anything and everything he see's. From yellow cabs to signposts. It's only when the Manhattan skyline comes into sight that he realises he has no film in his camera...

Walking in the Cheviot Hills, A Writer's Dream shows us a different form of what we all dread... a writer's block...

Madame Le Blanc, a postmistress, does a whole lot more than simply stamp letters and weigh parcels. She believes in keeping things in the family... until it's time to move on.

Pet Day at school is about a puppy that was re-homed from a rescue centre. After a tough beginning, he has finally found a loving home, and visits a local school to tell the children about his life.

The Adventures of Molly Poppie and Erin, is written by a grandfather for his grand-daughter. The three little girls climb through a tree trunk and find themselves in a land of cukcoo clouds and lollipop trees.

Digging for Victory, a tale about allotment holders up against a luxury home builder. Disgruntled men, an unexploded bomb, and a slice of Betty's prize winning chocolate sponge are deliciously arranged!

Face the Music and Dance, Platinum Page's very own serial, finds Peter Shakespeare getting his girl, but ends with horrific consequences.

Sprinkled over two pages are poems which have been generously shared with us.

I send an enoormous thank you to all of the contributors, and look forward to getting edition 3 printed.

An inspired poem

Dear Vivienne
inspiration from your blog picture
A Camera’s Eye View

Looking into a picture, starting from top left
The crows nests in the tree tops, gray sky’s causing silhouettes.

Following down the left hand edge, bare branches topped with snow
Tree trunks for all of us to see, as black as any crow.

Houses nestled in the woodland, roofs and chimneys tall
The evergreen of the fir trees, masking most, but not them all.

Let the eye drop down the river bank, small bushes all aglow
Standing proudly in the ground, topped off with winter snow.

The shallow water still and silent, bed rocks sticking through
Dark reflections of the trees, and individual branches too.

Suddenly a burst of light, of sunshine and of blue
Reflected in the river Tyne, intended just for you.

Feel that inspiration, as you stare in fascination
I’m glad you took your camera, and captured this creation

Ray Johnson.
looking forward to the mag best wishes
