April is Magazine Month

April is Magazine Month, a time to celebrate the global network of Rotary’s official magazines,
 which provide valuable information to 1.2 million Rotarians.
The Rotary World Magazine Press consists of 32 magazines
 from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe
 that inform, inspire, and entertain in 23 languages.
 In addition to The Rotarian, Rotary’s English-language flagship publication,
 it offers magazines such as Vida Rotaria (Argentina),
 Rotary in Bulgaria, and The Rotary-no-Tomo (Japan).
The RI Bylaws require all club members to subscribe to The Rotarian
or a Rotary regional magazine.
 Rotary leaders, district governors, and club presidents
 are encouraged to support magazine editors in their country or region
by submitting story ideas, promoting readership,
 encouraging timely subscription payments,
and assisting with other communication efforts.

On a lighter note

Percy B Shelley was shattered.
After banging out pamphlets and poems, odes and dramas with ease
he had suddenly run up against that which all poets fear more than editorial rejection
— writer’s block.
No matter how hard he tried, nothing came.
Page after page of gibberish went into the basket.
Pacing the streets of Oxford one morning he encountered his good friend Keats.
 Keats was in fine spirits but soon became solicitous when he heard the poet’s plight.
“The very thing happened to me last year,” said Keats.
 “So, upon the advice of a friend I visited a small religious retreat, Mount St. Michaela,
 off the coast of Cornwall.
 It is run by an order of nuns and there is nothing to do but listen to the surf and the gulls.
 In no time at all I was afire to put pen to paper.”
“Then I shall do it,” vowed Shelley,
and he hurried off to make arrangements.
Three days later,
 after a long, dusty and tiring coach ride, he soon arrived
 in the small coastal village across from the nunnery,
 and there he hired a skiff to take him over to the island three miles distant.
 A wind was coming up and the sun was setting as the fisherman methodically pulled the oars,
 drawing the boat every nearer.
The waves grew angrier but finally the boat
scraped alongside a rock and Shelley jumped ashore.
 Scrambling up the stone steps,
 he made his way to the front door of the convent
and a young woman peered out.
“I’m Percy Bysshe Shelley and I’ve come to stay here awhile.
 Please let me in.”
“I’m only a novitiate,” a small voice answered.
“Mother Superior has retired for the night
and only if I have her signature can I allow you admittance.”
“But a storm is coming up and the boat has gone back to the village,” pleaded the poet
. “Surely you can authorise it yourself.”
“I’m very sorry,” answered the young sister
. “You have to wait till the nun signs, Shelley.”
