Going Further

My No.1: ‘Left To My Own Devices (The Disco Mix) – Pet Shop Boys


GOOD NEWS?  We received our Dance marks for Beauty + the Beast today.  Well, put it like this: Scarlett wants to video Donna and me performing it in costume + make up.  She would also like to do the same with a new piece we’ve been creating.  She’s dead impressed.  Donna and I are really happy.  Scarlett has given us both DISTINCTIONS for our work.  My confidence is inspired.




‘Answer’ – Mick Karn


I feel ethereal.  I feel ready to exceed these earthly parameters.  I want to go further.  I am going further.  I am going … beyond. 


It may even hurt.


But I smile in the face of it all.


I am happy.
