Tonight I went to see Wild Honey by Michael Frayn and Chekhov at the ADC, preceeded by a talk by the great man himself (Michael Frayn, that is, not Chekhov, obviously). We randomly aquired a Miklos, which was nice, as I hadn't seen him for ages (although I maintain that the world is conspiring to keep me from getting romantic dinners alone with people other than M ;-) ) He has now been promoted from Masters to the lofty heights of PhDing. I hope I didn't come across as too jealous. It's hard to be jealous when your mouth is full of noodles.

It's been a while since I heard a theatre played properly, as Granny Weatherwax would say, and Wild Honey left me speachless and sad and somewhere quite other within myself in a way that nothing has done for a long time. And a moral and cautionary tale it was too ;-) Walking home, and a man with a guitar was playing Blowing in the Wind, a song which I have loved since my childhood, and I sat on the corner by the round church to listen, and we ended singing together, and exchanged names, which I have now forgotten, and shook hands, and I walked away into the night.

I have also produced another analogy that I think might be enlightening in the whole Christian debate.

You never know, after all he did do a booksigning not so long ago...

I like your analogy. I think several Deist/Unitarian types I've met and spoken to before would agree with it.

I'm not entirely sure what else I want to say. I am in no way an unbiased observer of anything; most of my thoughts are more about your internal debate than any external one and probably best kept to myself. Or you.

Here's hoping that India brings enlightenment, it's supposed to be good at that.

"It's hard to be jealous when your mouth is full of noodles."
