Five Things is a series of short journal posts introducing each of the writers and artists involved in our up-coming Time project.
Since the project's inception, the idea has been to create an environment where independent writers and artists could come together in order to share their work. The result of this endeavour is a collection of stories, images and poems based around the theme of time, its pages placing particular focus upon the relationship between words and pictures. By sharing in this way we hope to inspire each other as well as those around us, to draw a diverse audience and so help to illuminate the work of alternative artists and writers everywhere. Biography.

, a literary arts monthly event series. Five Things that have Inspired Me (from age 13 and under).
The NeverEnding Story
- Growing up, I loved both the book and the movie. I loved the book shop
that Bastian finds (and when I go into bookstores now, that's the experience I still long for), the way he steals the key to the school attic and eats his PB & J, Falkor, and the scary oracle.
The most influential part of the film for me was the part that made me the most upset: Artax, the horse, sinking in the swamp of sadness. Even now, I feel disturbed thinking of it. Watching Atreyu abandon his friend is so terrible--I remember the scene lasting for an hour (and I'd dread it until it happened), but I realize how short it is now.Sesame Street (or anything else Jim Henson touched)
- One strong memory from this show is Ernie's song, "I'd Like to Visit the Moon
.” So poignant and sweet. It strikes me how sad this song is (it might be Ernie's tone).120 Minutes on MTV
(and the music of 1995) - 1995 was an important year in music for me. I'd stay up late and watch Matt Pinfield, and watch videos from Bjork, Rancid, Oasis, Radiohead, Alanis Morrisette, and Soul Asylum. If you want to know more about my fixation on the music of 1995, have a peek at this post I wrote for Spoonful called "Gaining Musical Consciousness: A Mixtape from 1995
.”Super Mario Bros. 2
- My sister and I would play this endlessly. I still love the artwork and colors from it, especially Whale World. When I look at screenshots of this game, I feel nostalgia for the worlds pictured within it.Picture books that invited interaction: The Eleventh Hour
, The Mysteries of Harris Burdick
, and Peabody All at Sea
- These picture books are all mysteries. They ask the young reader to solve the case of the missing necklace (in Peabody), the eaten birthday feast (The Eleventh Hour), or the paired images and narrative fragments (in Harris Burdick). The Time Project.
