Do they do evening classes in high-wire, contortanist, acrobatics while singing ,bouncing off someones head,then landing on another persons feet, juggling ping pong balls from your mouth, landing , falling down a hole, getting up , jumping off a spring, throwing yourself off a fabric wall, making a human pyramid then jumping onto another moving human pyramid ,doing the splits ( no probs with that one ), twinkling in the dark , while looking amazingly beautiful ? Why ? Because I think I need a couple before I apply to join The Cirque Du Soleil troupe…OK , maybe just the one. John , Florence and I went to see ‘Varakei’ last night , it was jaw droppingly amazing. It is about the 5th different CDS I’ve seen and every time I’m blown away. In my book it rates as highly as a Gay Musical for PDT ( positive distraction therapy – nothing to do with my hormones ).If you can – go and see it.
Then this morning I woke from a beautiful dream of Rosie, friends and me in a swimming pool. It was so real , it broke my heart , over again , to know she wasn’t here. It put me in a deep dark place . I then listened to Gok Wan’s Desert island Discs. Out of the 8 , he chose 2 Tracey Chapman songs. Jane loved Tracy Chapman. His final song, TC’s ‘The Promise’ threw me completely , it is so so so beautiful and all I could do was cry and yearn for Rosie.
Tonight, Florence’s culinary skills brought me back to earth with a bang- the aroma of Tempura Veg frying in the kitchen, instilling a fear ( or thrill ) of another visit from our friends at ealing fire Station !
The 3 amigo’s are off to see ‘The Woman in Black ‘ tonight. Have you read the book- it’s brilliant…and short ?
