A magazine could be seen as a chat roulette – you have a look at the article, maybe start reading it, and either continue until the end or quickly press the “next” button, depending on your interest. Or maybe we could compare it to the Force, and light sabers wielded by Luke Skywalker and others in Star Wars. They’re normally used for good, but what if they were focused instead on fiery destruction, like Guy Fawkes? One could paint oneself blue and stay on the edge of wrong, or lead a calmer life, like Joan Armatrading or the Gongmaster. If everything goes wrong, try making like Florence Nightingale, working and helping when and where no one wants you to. Maybe a walk on the Freedom Trail could help. If you get lost, or stranded, telling a story may help you find your way out – even if supermarkets are closed. You see how your magazine is useful for everyday life? We’ll never be “Yesterday.” Happy reading, and listening! happy reading!
