Today, a bit of escapism… for the viewer, but also reality as the arts are still with us in this crazy world. And there are still youngsters choosing this as their career, all this hard work for our joy and pleasure.
Take a tea break, grab lunch watching a bit of ballet. I miss seeing these lovelies live so much.
not sure if anyone is dropping by at all at this stage, understandably. There is much i would like to write about, especially since there is so much i think about and so little i can do. So, i’m trying to maybe revive the blog a bit, sharing thoughts here and there, as and when i have time. I’m mainly trying to remember things i am fond of, things that mattered or that were pleasant distractions. Sometimes it’s just an image or music that prompt memories or things that make me wistful. I’ve aged a lot and i feel very old, but it also seems somehow odd.. to see people you have followed or known for years also get older.
For today, i bumped into Alejandro Sanz’ recent release and wanted to share it with you. I still love his voice and he may be older, but he’s still… Alejando Sanz 🙂 The song is called Bio and he talks about himself and his life, it’s somehow very touching in its simplicity.
It only took John Proctor and it only takes a few seconds of the trailer to bring all memories back 🙂 Feel free to browse back in the block for all my thoughts back then, still my thoughts now.
And i enjoy listening to him talk about work as much as i like seeing him at work.
And there was this ‘Guy’ 🙂 Truly one of a kind, unforgettable!
And i miss this one a lot as well, used to walk past a mega poster of my favourite spy every day until a couple years ago when we changed buildings.
and there are many more, of course.
Hopefully many more to come as well, on stage, on screen, in our ears 😉 I do crave a character who would accompany us a couple of years at least or who would touch as as deeply as Proctor did. Here’s to complex, relatable characters and may i ask for a writer who can sprinkle a sense of irony and some humour over the character, i really miss that.
It is done! For the first time in four years I have actually managed to transfer the donation from Richard’s birthday auctions on the day of his birthday. Before I get to the sum, I would like to give you all another pat on the back. The raised funds turned out to be bigger than I had imagined. In fact, they are four times as much than I had modestly calculated when I set the starting prices for the auctions. Even the fact that I had to deduct the eBay fees did not throw us back beyond the last milepost. That is due to the generous donations that kept coming in after the auctions ended. Thank you very much to everyone who took part, donors, bidders, supporters. You rock!
And so let me show you the accounts for the 2019 RA Birthday Auctions.
