Our topic this month is a complete Mystery! Seriously, our theme is Mystery.

A mystery can be dramatic, tense, scary, and murderous. Sometimes mystery is about a paradox, enigma or conundrum. Other times mystery is an everyday event that seems impossible or improbable but reveals itself over time.

Mystery can be fun like watching a movie. It can be profound and shape our philosophy of life. We ask ourselves if “knowing what will happen tomorrow ruins the whole mystery of life” (Mehmet Murat ildan).

“The important thing is not to stop questioning. Curiosity has its own reason for existence. One cannot help but be in awe when we contemplate the mysteries of eternity, of life, of the marvelous structure of reality. It is enough if one tries merely to comprehend a little of this mystery each day.”—Albert Einstein

Come join us as we discover through words and music the many aspects of mystery.

Churchmouse After Hours is a monthly neighbourhood coffeehouse with songs, stories, poems and prose on a rotating theme. All are welcome to listen or join in. Note: This is not a literary open-mic. Though local authors do participate, we are all readers sharing work we enjoy and admire.
