While my wife, Breda, and I we were on holiday in Portugal recently, a strange thing happened, something that I am still trying to come to terms with, It was a hot day and I was lying in bed,... More > enjoying a welcome rest after a busy few hours shopping for all those tacky souvenirs one feels obliged to bring home and distribute amongst close family and friends, each holiday. The patio door to the balcony was open, allowing a cool breeze into our hot apartment. I was really enjoying the holiday. I hadn’t a care in the world, but then I saw it, a seagull that was staring into our apartment, with its beady, piercing eyes watching our every move. I sat up in bed, gazing curiously at it. The seagull, however, seemed oblivious to how I was feeling, and the fact that he was encroaching on our privacy. “Look,” I whispered to Breda, “see what’s looking in at us.” “It must be hungry. Give it something to eat,” she said impatiently to me.< Less

The following story happened many years ago. It was the month of June. I was outside, in the garden, playing with my dogs. Although it was late in the evening, it was still fairly bright. As I threw... More > the ball away from me for the umpteenth time, my dogs, Jessie and Blue, raced after it with as much enthusiasm as the first time I had thrown it.

Across the far side of the room, through the doorway and the corridor beyond, I gazed at the picture, the picture hanging so innocently on the wall. It was still there, the picture of Jesus, the holy... More > picture that was the bane of my life. It was supposed to be a holy, so why did it take so much pleasure in tormenting me, so? Why did it act so strangely, so threateningly whenever I was alone in the house? Then it happened again.

The School Fete By Gerrard Wilson

Every year our school put on a Grand Summer Fete. It was the event of the year, just before school broke up for the summer holidays, and each and every pupil looked forward to it with great... More > anticipation. As the time of the event grew closer, and the school rooms began to fill up with the many bits and bobs that were donated for the big day, we were barely able to contain our excitement. You see, St Ignatius was a small, old-fashioned primary school, where space was at definite a premium, so Sister Alexis, our headmistress, designated a part of each classroom to store the donated stuff. I call it stuff because that is what it actually was, stuff that people wanted rid of. But to us children, with our imaginations running wild with excitement, it was treasure.< Less
Cracks In the Pavement By Gerrard Wilson

When I was a child I lived in Sunbury on Thames, where the pavements are made of concrete slabs. While they are easy to install, and even easier to rise again, if maintenance and repair work is... More > deemed necessary, they do have one major drawback – they crack easily. Take a walk around any built-up area, where these slabs are used, and you will see what I mean. You will see cracks everywhere. Most people going about their daily business never notice these failings, beneath their feet. And if they did happen to notice the cracks, I am sure they wouldn’t give them anything more than a passing glance. I, however, gave them a lot more attention than that. I saw each and every one of these cracks, be they chips off the corners or giant earthquakes splitting entire slabs in two, for what they were – a golden opportunity to run with the precision of an Olympic athlete.< Less
Ten In One Scopes By Gerrard Wilson

A wonderfully colourful memory from my childhood days are Ten in One Scopes. These instruments, these scientific instruments (printed upon each box, it stated, ‘scientific instrument, not a... More > toy’) were everything us boys wanted, and then some. The girls in our school had absolutely no interest in them, and that suited us boys just fine. It left us free, at playtimes, to indulge our favourite pastime – playing with our Ten in One Scopes. According to the advertising literature, our ‘scientific instruments’ could be manipulated to perform ten entirely different functions: 1. Reading Lens 2. Compound Microscope 3. Adjustable Telescope 4. Focusing Binoculars 5. Directional Compass 6. Solar Time Clock 7. Flat Mirror 8. Magnifying Mirror 9. Camp Fire Lighter 10. Code Transmitter< Less

Looking at the unusual bottle (it was greenish gold in colour) Ali wondered where her mother had purchased such a wonderful item. Moreover the liquid it contained tasted of chocolate, mango and... More > vanilla. There was no label upon it, only the name of the drink and a palm tree logo in front of a rising sun fashioned into the bottle itself... Later, Ali heard a loud KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK on the front door. "I wonder who that can be," she said timidly, "at so late of the hour?"< Less
