It's the 5th edition of our monthly format and I for one am really happy with how this is working out. The Kage members are always chatting on a daily basis, but it's been fantastic to see just how productive we can be as a group by simply applying a deadline. This is something I've been noticing more and more in my own life. If there's a deadline stuff will get done, but without one things just slip down a constantly evolving To Do list.
We went with the theme of "New Light" this month, which is maybe a little looser perhaps than previous ones. Being in the UK, Kevin and I will take any light we can get to be honest. I actually thought Kevin had hopped on a plane to Spain for a day when I saw his essay this month. Sunshine, saturated colours. Kevin Mullins? The UK?
Some of this months other content includes a camera strap review by Charlene that is inexpensive and could save your life. I revisit a place of mystery from my childhood 40 years on (this time without Fonz embroidered into my jeans). Patrick is forced to look at his own mortality and Bert has a midlife crisis after seeing stars. Robert finds another new town down under that isn't that new after all and Flemming and Vincent have different views on what a field of dreams should look like.
Hope you enjoy our May edition as much as I have
