Feeling sad...I actually tried ringing R Next Door's doctor. Of course, he's away until next week, and the receptionist implied that he's unlikely to do anything, or say much to me, as I'm not a relative. (R's daughter and family seemingly don't want to know. (I've tried contacting the daughter, who lives abroad, and didn't respond...)
Still clearing out junk, and I'm very, very tired, falling asleep all the time, and unable to deal with stuff I really need to be doing. (I can identify with R in the procrastination department...)
Snivelled all through the TV broadcast of EUGENE ONEGIN last night. Very good performance. I was also reminded of much-missed dead pal who used to love playing Prince Gremin. You don't have to do anything but stroll on at the end and knock 'em dead with a famous aria...I think he would have enjoyed doing the character's lil' coda, in this version, that has the doting elderly husband stumbling onto the doomed couple's final meeting, and realising that while Tatyana virtuously opts to stay with him, she will always love the rather creepy object of her youthful passion.  *Snurk*
