Last night the dreams came. I had been sleeping deeply for the weeks previous but then they started to creep in, slipping through the small fissures in night's oblivion. I don't always remember them in the detail that I would want - mainly it's just an imprint, a nagging feeling of something that may have... Continue Reading →

The winds had been at it all through the night. We were woken by the sound of it buffeting, trees that had stood for decades were relenting. Spring's new hope was facing the rawness of the world.

I always thought that the numbers would not really hit home until one of them was somebody... Continue Reading →

At last, we have reached the significant number, the one that we are all dreading. It's just another number on the list of numbers of diseases relating to their genetic structure rather than the disease. Therefore, viruses, and the diseases they cause, often have different names.  For example, HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. ... Continue Reading →
