I've been watching the films on BBC2. It takes me back to my childhood when I used to sing Oh What a Beautiful Morning at top whack- always when I was riding my bike. (I was also a massive Deanna Durbin fan...)

I was at that prom and loved it! Great atmosphere and the encore and final applause went on and on and on.

When Sheridan's employer had a box we used to go to masses of concerts at the RAH as we had brilliant seats for peanuts. Was there for the Last Night about 6-7 years ago (I forget which) was also brilliant. These days the box is gone (S is big classical movie buff so still goes a lot anyway and now makes do with the cheap seats!) and I may go to one or two that appeal more to me - like the musicals!

We're also going to a Music of James Bond concert at the RAH later this year.

Thought for life

  • The House of Breath, William Goyen
    We are the carriers of lives and legends - who knows the unseen frescoes on the private walls of the skull?

Thinking about . . .

  • Daniel Klein, Travels with Epicurus
    I too listen to music more and more. Throughout my life, music has stirred me more than any other art form, and now, in old age, I find myself listening to it almost every evening, usually alone, for hours at a time.
  • Julia Blackburn, Thin Paths
    I began writing because I liked to write things down. I learnt foreign languages because they seemed to enter my head by a process of osmosis.
  • Joan Bakewell, Stop the Clocks
    I live contentedly alone. It's better that way and I am often thoughtful about what has been and what might have been. There are many like me.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Oh to be reborn within the pages of a book.
  • Patti Smith, M Train
    Why is it that we lose the things we love, and things cavalier cling to us and will be the measure of our worth after we’re gone?
  • Judith Kerr, Observer Magazine, 22 November 2015
    I don't believe in God. I find it much easier to believe in ancestors. I like to imagine they are pointing us in the right direction.

Don't miss a post!
