Currently I am in total hibernation, cocooned inside with Duncan watching films and dramas (yesterday we watched Downton Abbey for twelve hours- it was utter bliss, but my own brain and words have been wiped out….all night I heard the theme song in my head, mourning the loss of Lady Sybil in my subconscious)
This morning I watched Jackie Brown, in my view Tarantino’s best film, and we are now going to watch it again with copious beers after dinner ( I spent the afternoon planning the next concert with Yoko (” A kiss in the dream house”, eating gold-leaf chocolate cake given us by my piano teacher, and we played and worked on the order of pieces for three hours…..)
… It is heaven to be released from the regular schedule, to go to bed whenever you want; sometimes at 9.45, the next evening at 3.30am….sometimes to leap out of bed at 5.30am and start practicing the piano then go and watch Mt Fuji covered in pristine snow from the Hansobo temple viewing platform….other days to sleep in until midday as the cold rain pounds the roof and you thank heavens for how lucky you are, tucked up warm inside being seduced by Visconti…..
My brain is mush: I smell of the usual orientalia…this morning I bathed in emu oil macerated with ylang ylang..
but I am waiting for the post desperately, as a belated Christmas present from sister is on its way…either Guerlain Spiritueuse Double Vanille or Tonka Imperiale, an exquisite torture not knowing which.. Maybe then I will be able to write again. But right now my brain is Bailey’s drenched cotton wool and there is no chance.
I hope you will bear with me….back soon!!
