Keep your curiosity sacred.

As a trainee journalist I need something to aim towards, or a print that I love to read. And to be honest ive never had this, untill I found 'Oh Comely'. Ive never heard about this magazine untill I found it in a little newsagents in SOHO, but im so happy I now have! It such a beautifully set up magazine that is so easy to read. The editorials are about things like biscuits, illustrators, musicians and tattoos, things that make you smile as you are reading them and im sure they love writing about. My favourite would have to be an illustrated story 'Four-legged meditation' 'Scenes from walks with my dog' by Rob Hodgson. He's literally just telling you about his dog Jack and when he walks him. For a start im a massive dog lover and have two of my own, who I miss very much whilst away at uni. And yet the sheer passion in the way that he writes it and the small snippets that move you make this piece of writing something that makes my skin tingle. "For all Jack the dogs humbleness and his quiet appreciation he can sometimes break out into a run, when he perhaps he is overcome by clarity, happy to be alive he is galloping through the pines." You should definitely have a look if you get a chance. This is the front cover...

Heres Rob and Jack...
