Stories…

We are first attracted by someone because their bag of stories, life or imaginary, glimmers fresh and enticing.
You know they come from another tale. Their mind and legs have trodden softly on exotic paths.
You want to wander deserts, seas and storms with them and listen to their medley of words that heat like fire in midwinter.

We are hardwired with curiosity and a secret cipher to unlock any new stories to put together these tales we travel with swiftly and innocently.

“We tell each other stories in order to survive” – Joan Didion

We tell each other stories in order to survive and sur-thrive.

We write your surviving and sur-thriving stories.

I illustrate with a story within a perfume story – by René Gruau (1971) for Miss Dior Parfum.

Language is not like the sun…

“Language is not like the sun, heating and scorching, but like the moon, keeping secrets and the arcane magic of the night, throwing stars in the lilacs’ claws till dawn.” -Iulia Halatz

We cater for everybody who has a story to write.
We have time. We believe in Omoikane, the Japanese god of wisdom and insight, a deity capable of making decisions that we would make if we only had the time. We make good decisions and start writing for you in a jiffy. Of course, after our first meeting (in person or online) and after we have received your brief.

We have perseverance. We love Kintsugi, the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum. We work, write and repair your web content until it is clear, clever, shareable and… Invincible.

We’d love to hear from you!

Have a most fortunate day in all your hermetic activities!

I am delighted that five of my poems were included in the Sudden Denouement Anthology Volume I. The anthology is now available on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

SORROW-TELL HEART

I was a pet of some exotic breed
I couldn’t sing above the ground.
Tamed, wounded, half born
Under the dark moon.

It was he
Who taught me
To unsing
Undream
Unbelieve
To him my humane body
Had been a fiery husk
Flickering
Against closed walls.

The garden was above
Dank meadows looming.

Everything I saw in my mind
I could perceive
With the eyes of
A wound,
Pulsating
Festering
Could I still feel the scent
Of night
in the carousel of pain?

I wanted to break
This corrosive perception
And listen to songbird…

Everything that shimmered
In my ears
Was crackling crows
Fruits of mauve trees
Against amber twilight…
In the sundown realm.

The blood of the stars
Had engulfed it…

My heart used to have roots
Into the feeble beams of autumn
After lilacs grew them stronger…

Can you pull me into April?
Or any month
wearing blue odors
And tawny lights…

Pending July
he would be felt on my skin
Like Spring rain
Without Spring.

Sophisticated
Abrasive
Pet
of one color…
I was allowed to contemplate
The flawed days only
through barbed windows…

You lived,
But somewhere else
The black moon turned away
Sheltered steppe
Had no need of garbage flowers

The zest for life
Is fortitude, work
Dream
Of a plain new world
Swept in the ascending
Web of Truth.

Forgive

“My brother used to ask the birds to forgive him; that sounds senseless but it is right; for all is like the ocean, all things flow and touch each other; a disturbance in one place is felt at the other end of the world.”
Fyodor Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov

Personal value proposition

“Your PVP, your personal value proposition, is how you impact your company.
It’s how your work changes the world.” – Gapingvoid

Content writers don’t write blog posts – they create stories.

Teachers don’t teach – they create stories and experiences.

Teachers create stories around you as a main character. You get to play many parts, one of which is to rewrite and retell your story in English. With “little” help from your teacher.

So when you come the the course, you know what story to weave.

There is no place for arrogance in the teaching. The only thing is changing the world of your students.

The Laughing Heart

“your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.”
Charles Bukowski, The Laughing Heart
