No, no, not you, dearest reader. It is I who needs to keep calm and carry on. I leapt into my blog program on Monday with vim, vigour and inarticulate cries of joy. I had it all planned, I did. Truly.
But the best laid schemes o’mice and men (and Imeldas) gang aft agley, as Rabbie Burns would say. I neglected to recall that the long, leisurely Saturday, during which I intended to polish my first Sunday Salon until it shone, was entirely taken up with a workshop with the quite fabulous Michael Hague. For those who don’t know, he teaches screenwriting and story technique and I have been looking forward to this for weeks. I just forgot it was THIS week.
I will make it up to you, I promise. I in coming weeks, I will be interviewing: a woman passionate about empowering girls to be awesome; a storyteller using the ancient tradition of told tales to foster cultural development in the here and now; and a dear friend who has forgotten more about making authentic medieval costumes than I will ever know. Among others.
In the meantime, please enjoy this gorgeous story about the origins of the poster above and have a lovely Sunday!
