Sounds of Sky

Last night we went to the British Library to see an event called “Sounds of the Sky”. It was fun being in the British Library and seeing some of the rooms, but the event wasn’t that great. The first part involved lying on our backs in a big room while various audio recordings played through some speakers overhead. The audio tracks – mainly interviews – were good, but the sound itself was a bit muddy and neither Helen nor I could make out some of the dialog.

Agents of Shield

Last night I binge-watched 6 episodes of Agents of Shield on Netflix! I hadn’t watched the series for ages, and so I picked up from Season 3. I absolutely loved it!

Romeo and Juliet at the Troxy

Last night Helen’s choir – Some Voices – performed Romeo and Juliet at the Troxy in Limehouse. It was a superb show – really atmospheric and the music was excellent!

The show was based on Baz Luhrmann’s version of Romeo and Juliet. The audience was divided into the Montagues and the Capulets. The Montagues were wearing Hawaiian shirts – surf-casual dress. The Capulets were wearing red and black, with a more formal Spanish gangster look. We filed in to the Troxy in different queues depending on whether we were Capulets or Montagues.

The choir sung songs based on the movie and there were actors and dancers performing key scenes. It was a true spectacle!

Lanore, my Facebook friend long-standing, but my distance she’s demanding, a restraining order landing, with the full force of the law.

So I’m at the keyboard thinking, with my broken heart a-sinking, trying to find the words to reconnect with lost Lenore.
