Green pastures

Today I danced in a beautiful park overlooking a river.  I also spent time at Tea and Sympathy enjoying chocolate cake, scones and a cuppa.  I lit a candle at home and spent some time in quiet reflection.
Now I'm watching The Vicar of Dibley, which for all its silliness will always feel familiar and not just as nostalgic entertainment.
These things all give bond me in some way to my home and loved ones who I'm thinking of every day.

PR - Pancake Riot

Just wanted to share my terribly indulgent breakfast - coconut and chocolate pancakes with coconut cream and maple glazed banana.
And yesterday basically all I ate were pastries. Mmmm pastries.

No this is not a blog about a sea creature encounter in Puerto Rico (sadly, I would've loved to meet a shark)
That blog is imminent fear not. I took mad pics and being a sentimental type I'm having trouble choosing the best out of the multiple shots I took of, well, everything.

This week, I am a shark. Sharks don't stop moving, they are constantly forging ahead. This is good and bad.
Good: I'm getting things done.
This week I went to an audition, worked on an extra project I've been assigned by Troy, dogsat, finished reading Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, returned to reading Blood Meridian, submitted for auditions, rode my bike to the library and took out three books, began an art project, filmed a short improvised dance in a cool location, took tap class and worked my two usual jobs.

Bad: I'm not actually a shark so this may not be sustainable long term. I just have the strong feeling that to stop now will be to sink. It's daunting.

In GREAT news, I got the release date wrong - episode one of Keplers Ark by Ben Holbrook is OUT TODAY for your listening pleasure!
You can download and listen free from

If you're not entirely sure what's going on by the end of the first episode, good. It was pretty mysterious to me first time through as well.

If you want to hear me sound tense and stressed, be annoyed with people and ask questions in an incredulous tone, listen to this podcast!
Or, you know, call me on the phone.


Anyway I just listened and its super fun to hear everything mixed and edited with sound FX and music added. 

Here is a picture of me doing what's known as 'serving up some face' post-audition - it didn't go as I wished so a defiant mirror selfie in the next studio over seemed as good a coping method as any.
