Love And Art...

Saw an excellent little film, CUTIE AND THE BOXER, about a married artistic couple from Japan, living, and bickering affectionately, for many impecunious years in New York. It was really quite touching. (I was also a bit encouraged, as the husband, despite having been an alcoholic for ages, is now 80 or so, and fit as flea, still making art.)

Had one of those horrorshow moments when you catch sight of your raddled features reflected in a window. Holy Mother of God...I look like a dehydrated apple, with two little currant eyeballs. Facelift IMPERATIVE!  I know vanity is absurd in one such as I, wot was ugly from the get-go, but  it just seems so weird, feeling twenty years younger  (well, a lot of the time-), but  looking twenty years older. Oy...
Looking forward to checking out a very curious performance of RHEINGOLD on Sunday, thanks to motodraconis
It's taking place in a church in Fulham, with an orchestra of eight!. Surely, this could not be anything but a disaster, but it's been quite well received, and certainly arouses one's curiosity. Looking forward to it...
