Monday Moments: Marching Ever Onwards

Introduced by Holly King January is the month of resetting: resolutions, starting a new year, a new you, a new future. Yet it’s never made much sense to me, because the calendar year is an external construct. You can’t reset in any literal way, and I’ve never been able to keep ...

Monday Moments: Reworking Christmas 2020

Introduced by Holly King “Have a holly jolly Christmas, it's the best time of the year...” I sing to myself as I put up the Christmas decorations on a respectable date (I held out until 30th November). I put them up alone last year as well, as I live alone, so ...

Monday Moments: Falling Into Fall

Introduced by Holly King This week, we’re 'Falling Into Fall'; the temperature has dropped dramatically, leaves are falling from the trees, sunshine has been replaced with rain giving way to heavy-clouded skies and, to round it all off, I fell over! I find our use of the word 'fall' interesting. We ‘fall’ ...

Monday Moments: If Music Be The Food Of Love

Introduced by Holly King Music is a feast I enjoy every bite of. It elicits innate emotions, wordless reactions that spark the moment I hear the first few bars, swell as the introduction gives way and is heightened with poignant lyrics. Music can be found in the everyday, from onomatopoeia and alliteration ...

Monday Moments: Invisible Colours

Introduced by Holly King Did you know that the human eye can see approximately one million colours? Colour is such a basic element of our lives; it dictates when we should ‘go’ or ‘stop’, whether someone has poured too much milk in your tea and there are even colour personality tests ...
