The Tuesday Platform

Welcome to The Imaginary Garden ...

September 13 this year, marked the centenary of Roald Dahl's birth in Llandaff, Cardiff, 1916. Dahl was a prolific writer of poetry, short stories and children's literature, with 200 million copies sold worldwide, translated into 59 languages. Read the wonderful article on BBC.com. With the recent passing of the beloved actor, Gene Wilder, whose portrayal of Willie Wonka is nonpareil, I have been thinking of the huge debt of gratitude we, as the collective members of the living human race have to the authors, publishers, book-makers, actors, singers, poets... all and any who have made it their life's work to tell our stories. It is one of the greatest legacies of creativity and intellect.

Today is our day to add a drop to the ocean, so our generation may also be represented in times to come.
