Story and Poem of the Week and Inspiration Point

I was going to open this with a complaint about the rain, (for those of you outside the UK it is almost illegal for us not to comment on the weather at least once in any piece of writing) - but the sun has just come out - so things are looking up!

Lots of wonderful pieces to choose from this week, as ever, but my personal picks are as follows: Poem of the Week goes to the deeply moving 'Wear and Tear' by london_calling79, and our Story of the Week is 'Gladsheim' by Schubert. It's a good old-fashioned mystery which is very enjoyable and we are three parts in so far. Congratulations to both. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did.


Here's this week's Inspiration Point:

If you have a bank holiday this weekend I hope you have a good one!
