Happy Chinese New Year!
This is my piece for the upcoming issue of Infinity Astrology Magazine.  I’m writing this from a high-rise in the centre of Hong Kong, overlooking the dancing lights of Kowloon, which reflect and refract in the waters of the straits. It’s been quite a week here because we’re in the run up to [...]

The Magic Window
Commuters on a Train — Cyril Power[/caption] I grew up in a country where it was unusual, on public transport, to see people reading anything other than a smudged newspaper. I moved to London, where inside the bright-lit tube trains, a colourful collage of hundreds of paper covers made a [...]
