So, the three musketeers are now graduates of the Liverpool Institute for Performing Arts. Not students. Which means one part of our journey is officially over. In reality, it’s been over for some time, but now we have papers to prove it. I don’t know how it feels yet, haven’t given it much thought. But there is definitly some things that will be missed. And some that wont.
I would like to say a big thank you to everyone that has crossed our path for the past three years. Not every encounter has been a pleasant one, but I think I will say that every encounter has been an important one. It has led us here, to the edge of the next step. Which is the exciting bit! Thank you all for your support, encouragement, criticism, disapproval, arrogance and stubborness. And thank you all for your commitment, your courage, your loyalty and your friendship. Some things change and some things don’t, but even the things that change shall be remembered!
Anyhow, Edinburgh is a really nice city, very cosy and very friendly. Lot’s of nice shops you all would enjoy for different reasons. I suggest that we make this a destination for a trip together at some point, I think that would be a nice experience, I would like to walk these streets with friends, as it seems like a city you should share with someone close.
I hope you all are well and happy wherever you are at the moment! And hopefully we can find some time to talk too each other soon!
High uP in the north
So I think it is time for me to reappear into the world of the BrookfieldLodge blog. Things here in England have been hectic, I have been doing a lot of research for the two shows I’m working on at the moment, one of my wonderful jobs includes typing up the entire script… which is what i have been busy at for the past week or so. I had a production meeting this morning which went well, and I have another one on Monday… and on Tuesday… and probably more next week. So things are starting to get busy. Georg and I have been trying (in vain) to catch each other on Skype, I shall not be on tonight I am going to the theatre to see a play called “Look Back In Anger” at the Jermyn Street Theatre… I’ll let you know how it is.
Anyway I’m thought I would mention a song I’m listening to a lot lately while I’m here. Its from the new James Blunt Album and its called Annie… The reason I’m mentioning it is because of one particular line.
“All the World will know your name, and you’ll be famous as you are, cause I’ll sing for you”
I just love the idea of someone being “Famous as you are” To be famous by just being you, not worrying about how you are perceived in the public image, not working hard to be famous or anything really. Also from the perspective of the singer, to love someone so much that you just want the whole world to know their names. The image that comes to mind is one of someone standing on top of a hill leaning over to give the person below them a hand up too. Which is a very contrary image to the typical “on top of the world” pose you see of someone standing on top of a mountain alone.
It’s something that struck me.
That you can get higher by standing on the shoulders of friends, than on the bodies of enemies.
So I thought it is time to write something here again. Although I cannot think of something creative at the moment. But it looks like this blog is going to die if we don’t write something every now and then. So here it goes:
It is raining today, after a few really nice days, the summer decided to take a break again. (It wasn’t good at the weekend already). But I am not bothered.
For graduation next week I bought the two most expensive plane tickets ever during my time at LIPA. It is incredible how much the prices have gone up over the past months. Well, it will probably be the last time for a while that I will fly on my own costs. But I am annoyed because now I will have to come alone…
Well, we haven’t heard anything from the person not really living in London but close… 😉 We might speak on Skpye soon though.
I see this post is getting more and more useless so I should stop writing. Have a good time!
Hello world. This is my weekly “e-mail and blog” day, as I have been quite good and following G’s advice to let all these things lay when on vacation. And it is really working, I am so relaxed, so carefree and ignorant that it’s almost too much. Although, this week the phone has been on, but that’s about it. Congratulations me.
I read your comment Georg, and this feeling then hit me, I actually didn’t care. I’ve been pondering this for the past week, when our grades comes, will I actually be annoyed if I get any bad marks, or if any of the grades are below what I expect? You say we nearly failed e&e… well, e&e failed us. I don’t care about it. Because it was the most ridicolous, time-wasting, stupid module of all the stupid modules we have ever had. We did what we were told to do, we finished on time and we passed it. Beyond that, I can’t muster any energy… But I must say I am interested to see what feedback I have on frp, and what you guys have. Perhaps I will talk to Kathy and Joe when we meet again.. just for some personal satisfaction. Nothing mean, nothing vile.. just truth.
It is an interesting thing though, that I was thinking about if I would care or not care, and when I get it, I don’t care. But does that mean I do care?
just bought a new Hammer for this Production (couldn’t think of anything else, but it is true, I did by a new hammer)
… yet again. Although it was not entirely my choise. From this morning on my harddrive decided to join Hans’ external one on it’s suicidal mission and stopped booting windows. So now I am also crawling through data recovery and all that nice stuff…
I just think this really shows real sense for companionship!
It has been a while since we have posted some philosophical things here. And I am currently sitting at the breakfast table and there is this cup on the table which has this nice wisdom written on it, so I thought I just post it here:
To laugh often and much,
to win the respect of intelligent people
and the affection of children,
to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends,
to appreciate beauty,
to find the best in others,
to leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch…
to know even one life has breathed easier because you lived.
This is to have succeeded!
Have a nice day…
