051/2024 – “Good Jump, Charlie. Have You Been Practicing?”

They’ve clearly been practicing…

Well, I have with my camera’s setting and finally after all this time I’ve managed to get a good jump shot at the final applause. With the full original cast even, Yay! One thing to check of my bucket-list. Kidding. Or not.

Operation Mincemeat – A New Musical” for the 2nd time on this trip was almost as much fun as on Saturday. Not as much went wrong this time 😉 But seriously, it always makes me happy to see it and to be able to chat with the cast a bit after at the stage door. I know, I know, I’ve banged on about that one line from it, but there is so much truth in it. For me anyway.

“The world’s a mess, Charlie. Small flashes of joys, that’s all any of us can hope for”

Ewen Montagu, Operation Mincemeat – A New Musical

It all turned even more relevant, when I walked back to the station after the show and for some reason my thoughts all of a sudden started doing that annoying tailspin down the well of negativity. I have some ideas why, but that’s something I will need to work through offline. Pen and paper and all that. Which I will start doing tonight for a bit in the hopes that my mind will be quiet enough afterwards to fall asleep. Practicing not jumping, but selfcare, which is more important to me at the moment anyway…
