This week is flying by like speeding train rushing so fast whirly-gig!  Can’t stop to catch my breath…  Now that Measure for Measure is in its run, it’s changeovers between it andWritten on the Heart every day, and Saturday (and the end of the placement) is rushing up and before I know it, I’ll be headed back to London!  But the actual moments are passing strangely slowly, as if I’m in some kind of fugue state.  While life hurtles dangerously by, I find myself oddly at peace.  No sooner do I step off the Train in London than I am popping to Central School to interview for the PhD programme, and that very day hopping on a plane or train to leave the country just in the nick of time for my visa to expire…  Then it’s waiting for the results of my research degree application, and in the meantime, I’m working on The Awesome Show with Trish and Wish — That goes up the first full weekend in January, and hopefully I’ll somehow have figured out my Border Agency status by the time our residency begins…
Things are also happening on the All That Glitters Theatre front — Caroline and I have teamed up with amazingly talented composer/artist Jen Green to work on a new project: a sort of evolution from Guilt.  Caroline’s got a late December meeting at the Theatre Royal Stratford East to discuss bringing the as-yet-untitled piece there, and she needs at least a first draft of a script in hand for that meeting.  So I’m working on that as well.  The reviewing for RemoteGoat seems to be going well — Trish and I went to N1 on Sunday after a long day of birthday celebrations for her to check out The Orgy in the Lighthouse and other Dark Tales.  Two long days of deliberation later and the review is all finished and waiting for editorial review before going live.  I’ve applications and letters in to a dozen different theatres, and a stack of scripts to drop by as many new writing theatres before I leave the country…
Right now life is just like some sort of great jigsaw puzzle, and all the jigs sort of hang on the jogs, and vice-versa.  I’ve no doubt all the pieces will fall into place, but I can honestly say that I’ve no idea how, or what direction my life will take when the dust all clears.  It’s an exciting time, that much I can say with no hesitation.
