And tell me good sir, who might you be?" "The name's Watson. But you can call me John. I'm a medical doctor, formerly in [...]

Tandem Post: The Missing Voice

Every couple of months a few writers gather together to create a series of Tandem Blog Posts. What this means this time is that seven of us - Nick Frost, Trevor Black, Megan Furniss, Ashley Visagie, Dave Luis, Candice D'Arcy and myself - all received the same title a week ago - The Missing Voice - and the idea is that each of us will create a post inspired by that title with a link [...]

Breaking Bread [with Trev]: Words vs Life

It has been a bit of a while since i had a Breaking Bread conversation with Trev where each of us gets five chances to respond to the other person with around 100 words per time and so we decided to give it another try and here it is: = = = = = = = = = = Brett: (1/10) Hey Trev, it feels like it's time we had another one of these conversations. The [...]

Tandem Post: 37 Million Light Years

37 Million Light Years It arrived on the screen as a message of hope: "37 Million Light Years" The number seemed so ridiculously large that Corporal-Sergeant Janet Witherspoon wondered how it had ever been cause for concern in the first place. How does an exploratory spacecraft fitted out with all the latest technology still somehow manage to mess up so badly? 'Human error', she thought to herself. Living in a futuristic society beyond anything most people [...]

Tandem Post: That nagging feeling…

Not too fast. Not too slow. We [...]
