spending the afternoon with my idol

do you know how many people get to spend an afternoon with their idols?

well i don't but i suspect it's not millions. or even thousands. or even hundreds.

tomorrow i get to do this thru sheer drive. i worked towards it happening and it's happening. i have wanted this since 1991. tomorrow i am going to interview LINDSAY KEMP (genius performer/dancer/director/choreographer/actor) and talk to him. i will write it up for LIVING TUSCANY magazine to which i now regularly contribute. i enjoy it. i met and reviewed james taylor...a wonderful experience with him reading 'girl on fire' (my debut poetry collection) out loud in the street in bologna. i just bumped into him. hundreds of metres from the theatre where he was going to sing and hours before....serendipity. another high from this year.

have you any idea how excited i am? not nervous just excited! cos now i know him. i work with him. i get taught by him. stage craft. his own style of movement and expression which melts totally into my sense of theatre and craft as a performer singer/ mover/ actress/ writer/ painter/ composer/ wit and 'haut-chocolat' reviewer... one gets so bored! i just do what i do

but joking apart, it's a huge thing for me. big honour. i am totally humbled.

since i last chatted to you (not yesterday) and thru various contacts and my PR manager and my personal manager , my website, going on you tube, doing a bit more singing and a bit of modelling i have had my first taste of recognition. i have a facebook page with nearly 5000 followers for which i am incredibly grateful and my books have sold well, one was a best seller on! i have written two poetry collections and a novel so far, and am working on my dance more, writing a children's poetry collection and a third adult orientated collection too. i am working on my painting, aware of all i have to learn...i am also working up my singing.

i work fucking hard hours every day and i am a more fulfilled sorted person. i am very prolific and productive. i love it all. and tomorrow....we are doing the long haul to livorno...

think of me xx

missed this

i am starting to blog again. i was advised by my PR manager not to blog but i think it was wrong. maybe he meant dont post unpublished poetry in case someone nicks it, but i am feeling the urge to share with you again every day.what more expression? fuck me !
just back form mass. it was great. i always feel fab after mass.
my faith is growing daily.
i have become a Roman Catholic complete with two godmothers since we last chatted. it was the right move for me. since then everything is coming together...
the magic of knowing the unknowable.
oh, guys, i know!
