i have had a whirlwind week already – moving my son into halls of residence, which left me in tears – i know he’s only half an hour away, but it’s the psychological moving out and a realisation that all my kids are growing up and leaving home. however he did pop by for more clothes and asked if i would launder his ‘best’ clothes – bit worried about the industrial laundry room on the premises – which suitably impressed me that he was going to be fine living in a shared room with a bunch of teenagers!
its definitely film season and i was utterly proud and hold immense admiration for my muse and friend pip (she was the first to sit for me when i started my photography) to see her first film premiere , fourever at the rain dance festival – so not only is she a pretty face, but has managed to produce, direct and act in her first feature film and was accepted on her very first submission to the festival – i can only foresee an amazing future. there is still another viewing tomorrow – be warned its not an easy film to watch, compelling and uncomfortable – a story about revenge.
and last night we watched ‘the soul boys of the western world’ film – the story of spandau ballet, how they met, their rise to fame, their disputes and their reunion – its an amazing story and an important historical documentation – combining real film clips of the times with the nostalgic history of the era. i highly recommend it – its a love story for life.
