And then there was the film audition. Yesterday, with only a few minutes notice, I rushed over to the other side of the island to impersonate a heartless US army officer ordering the execution of some prisoners, and apparently, possibly not based on my acting ability, but more probably on the fact that they didn't audition many English speakers, I stand a reasonable chance of being called back!
Other good news is that the canoe is now very close to completion for the second time; I know of two glues that I can’t use to stick cans together and have a third ready for trial; and I have officially (again) put aside any formal training and racing programmes for a while so that I can get back to surfing and boat building.
The first of the proper winter rains has passed through, I now have to sleep with a blanket, sometimes, and with some projects nearing completion and others gaining momentum, I feel a change in the air and look forward with optimism.
So, whilst not what I intended, here is a weekly blog update, to be continued during the next few days...
