If you love the book as I do – you will probably like the play as much as I do too!
I bought myself a birthday present and hoped this fantastic book translated well to stage. And it did! The cast was fantastic, it had great stage design and the story worked very well. Very recommended if you are in London!
The view from my B&B room in Weymouth Saturday morning around 8am (yes zoom lens and a room with sea view very close to the beach). It didn’t look very promising so we headed to a cafe for a coffee and the Saturday Guardian. I think the dogs are more depressed because of the ridiculous jackets they are wearing than because of the rain.
A couple of hours later …
I am recovered from the frantic couple of weeks I had. After spending nearly all day story boarding yesterday, today I picked up my camera (it has been too long!) and took it for a walk. A walk from my home to Chelsea along the Thames Path has long been on my list of things to do, and today was the day.
She walked all the way from the market on Union Square (14th) until the edges of Central Park that day. It felt good, and because New York was melting for her with lots of sunshine it gave her a feeling of spring. Both on the outside of her body, it was nice to be able to drop the gloves, but also inside her mind. It felt like after a long dark winter, she was slowly waking up again. The sun on her face, the sounds of the city it felt good.
The Girl and The Thames
This is the Thames. And when you look at it, the water doesn’t really look clean. But clean or not, this is the water I get out of my tap at home. We get our drinking water from the Thames up here. And it looks clean coming out of the tap, and it tastes good too I can say.
Now a lot of people think that it rains all the time in London. But the thing is, it doesn’t really rain enough. For the first time in 15 years, Thames Water is implementing a ban on sprinklers and hosepipes from the 3rd of april 2006. This means that people no longer may use sprinklers to sprinkle their garden, or wash their cars using a hosepipe. You may still wash your car using a bucket of water though, or sprinkle your garden using a watering can or bucket. (Water restrictions – frequently asked questions)
Why all this ?
It hasn’t rained enough in London the last years !
And so I made a phonecall (yes to him), and later that afternoon:
You worship the sun, but now can you handle the rain ?
A pleasure to help London, and apart from that I love rain. Isn’t it a beautiful sight ?
