Any sign of him?

We go to the doctor when we feel flu-ish or a nagging pain, so why don't we seek a professional when we feel emotional pain? Too many of us deal with psychological-health issues on our own, but you don't have to...

In an effort to raise awareness for the importance of mental health, I'll be offering heavily discounted first and second appointments for anyone who would like to experience the benefits of therapy. No obligation to attend more that one meeting, and there's no need to talk about anything you'd rather not share. This is a great opportunity for anyone that's not sure if they'd benefit from therapy give it a test without having to commit too heavily.

Don't underestimate the importance of self care. You are the most important thing in your life.

I'm curious to know where the poetry thing started. And what the weirdest use of the forum has been so far. Don't give me prosaic and dull, please.


Summer Exhibition

The summer exhibition at the museum will be running from 1st July to 30th September.

It’s on burial rituals from around the world.

The exhibition is being held on basement level, lower ground floor. The things don’t like sunlight.

Ask a member of staff to show you to the entrance. You wouldn’t want to get lost down there!

Call: Kratos S

[Call: Kratos S]

[It's a flyer and she's looking at an empty space and boxes and whoever sticks their number on a flyer will do. It's late afternoon: five, maybe six and it's mid-week and the truck is on its way out of town. The phone rings, and the space echoes empty.]


News: arcade

[Midway through the afternoon - almost exactly coinciding with the avalanche of kids just out from school and heading for arcade games - there is a complete, neat power-cut to the arcade. It kills every machine blaring flashing lights and noise, it takes out the air-conditioning system and the lights, it eliminates the cash-register. Not catastrophically. The help calls the power company, and they commit to sending someone tomorrow but for the afternoon and evening, the place is dead. Late, late, when the town is asleep, the lights power back on and the A/C but none of the machines. When the power-company makes a trip out the following day, there's no rhyme or reason as to why there was a day without games. Everything powers back on and it's like it never happened]

[News - Motel and Repose Businesses]

[Not that it makes much of a difference to those that call the motel "home", but several weeks ago, there was an unexpected flurry of activity one morning. Activity such as a police car, an unmarked squad, and the motel owner being escorted away. He wasn't particularly cooperative, but neither was he handcuffed. He was taken off in the back of the unmarked squad, headed into the Capital. The front office of the motel was unattended for the rest of the day, but the next morning the motel owner's wife showed up to take care of the place.

She did NOT look happy.

Since then, several other people have been hired to tend the office, as well as someone new to clean the rooms, and there's been no sign of the owner.]

[Recently, business owners in Repose have all received a letter from the Capital Police Department. It outlines the opportunity to provide employment to those going through work-release and/or rehabilitation and recovery programs. It is noted that there is a tax credit available for those who employ someone for longer than 4 months. Businesses interested in providing positions for such employees are to contact the CPD to begin an application and review process. A phone number and email is listed at the bottom of the letter.]



It has been a while...

Thin are the night-skirts left behind
By daybreak hours that onward creep,
And thin, alas! the shred of sleep
That wavers with the spirit's wind:
But in half-dreams that shift and roll
And still remember and forget,
My soul this hour has drawn your soul
A little nearer yet.

Our lives, most dear, are never near,
Our thoughts are never far apart,
Though all that draws us heart to heart
Seems fainter now and now more clear.
To-night Love claims his full control,
And with desire and with regret
My soul this hour has drawn your soul
A little nearer yet.

Is there a home where heavy earth
Melts to bright air that breathes no pain,
Where water leaves no thirst again
And springing fire is Love's new birth?
If faith long bound to one true goal
May there at length its hope beget,
My soul that hour shall draw your soul
For ever nearer yet.

- Dante Gabriel Rossetti
