Hotel Obscure By: Lisette Brodey

Hotel Obscure By:  Lisette Brodey Have you ever wandered down the street at night and noticed the many glowing windows which are lighting up the area?  Twinkling in the dark stillness.  Whether they be private residences, condo buildings or hotel rooms- the question in our minds remains the same.  What is actually happening behind those closed curtains?  What would it be like to enter that world and actually get a taste of it?  Would the result be marvellous and memorable- or gloomy and disappointing?  What are the people in those rooms actually doing… and would we want to be...

Doctor Hydenberg
really liked it
To come to the end of one’s life and be full of regret is a terrible thing for anyone to experience.  The whole idea of living with no excuses and loving with zero regrets, right out the window.  A life full of missed opportunities and w…

Guinevere: At the Dawn of Legend

There can be little doubt that childhood is an exciting and wonderful time.  It is filled with a variety of fresh and new experiences which are approached with a childlike innocence.  Be that as it may, such youthful exuberance can be qu…

The Zoo: An Allegorical Adventure

What would it take to bring a vibrant and bustling Metropolis to its very knees?  The simple answer to this question is…not very much!  Any type of civilization takes a great deal of time and industry to create, but precious little effor…
