Well it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted something here.
Last Thursday I went to London to my son’s end of course presentation – he’s been training in clowning which is a very fascinating and deep subject – real emotions, tragedy and comedy is got in touch with and brought into the performance – he’s found it life changing.
On Saturday we went to Bristol to a day’s workshop of sabar drumming and dance with a great party in the evening and Sunday we came back home. I’ve got a busy week ahead – I’m thinking of starting writing my morning pages again to try and keep my writing mojo going – I used to write a few pages every morning early – just to clear out thinking and get all the channels open and flowing.
This coming weekend my dad and his wife plus my kids and family are coming for a late Christmas (well not really Christmas now!) so I’m looking forward to that – I’ve got to try and get everything sorted out before Thursday as I’m going to see Paloma Faith on Thursday in London and coming back just before everyone arrives on Friday – mmm – can it be done – I hope so!!!
We’re having a late christmas when my mum and aunty get here too, hehe (next week). I’d gladly go without – neither of us are really into christmas – but they feel obligated I think ;p
Training in clowning? Wow, that’s very original! But the world needs more clowns 🙂
Of course, people with clown phobia might disagree… 😉
ha ha – yes some clowns are scary – I couldn’t believe how involved the training is – they really explore areas of their lives and personality to be able to convey emotion in their performance.
Wow, I wouldn’t have guessed the traiing would go into that kind of depth either. It’s really quite interesting. Makes sense though – so much can be read in just a “look”.
Any time you can get together with family, it’s a holiday … no matter what you want to call it.
As for the clowning (minor in balloon animals?), I have heard from some people who said it really made them into new people. I really respect the profession.
