In the 90’s, I was studying Video Production at a college in London.  The college, which will not be named, was renowned for accepting drop outs, rejects and failures, like myself.   It was the only college that accepted me because of my less than average grades at school. At the time, I was fascinated by […]

The Old Man And The Grapes

Every summer, my mother used to take us to Syria to spend the summer holidays at the beach in Latakia. We used to stay at the ‘Cote D’Azur’ of Latakia otherwise know as the ‘Blue Shore’.

On closer look, it appears that the ‘light’ may […]
