“The Sound of Guitars...”

Liverpool. A city of poets, musicians, comedians and several banana shaped lamb statues.
Oh, and a yellow submarine – and a cathedral (or two),
and now a collection of fifteen short stories, tall tales
and mysterious occurrences celebrating the city as well.

Wrapped around Liverpool in the same way
that the river Mersey wraps around the
city itself, intertwining with its people and places,
“Liverpool” showcases the love of life, laughter
and music that the city embodies, and makes its own.
Come with me now to see the mist rolling
off that wonderful, beautiful river, and if you
were to let your mind wander and imagine
that the river is a song then that song
would be a shanty, sad and melancholic,
yet lifting as well. It would make you laugh,
it would make you cry. It may even make you think,
but for sure it would most definitely break your heart.

Welcome to Liverpool, the gateway
to absolutely everywhere else.
