  3. Words good enough to make me cry...and to make me wonder what happened to our world that we have developed into these shadows of human beings when it comes to understand the pain of others. Words...I used to tell my Beloved never to leave words behind, no matter what, they are the jewelry of the soul when they come from the right place to reach our souls, I have always think that even angry words come from a place that needs help to show us what our eyes cannot see. Just like these do...

  4. Mesmerizing. And beautiful. Thanks for that, John.

  5. Not only was that one brilliant, all the monologues I saw were, particularly one with Julie Walters and another with Dame Thora Hird.

  6. I thought this was the most memorable in that series, and the first of them, I seem to recall.

    1. I've got just an hour to decide whether to see 'Paddington 2' just down the road, and starring the fanciable Mr Whishaw here or, rather, just his voice - so young and me so old that in current climes I almost feel guilty about owning to having a bit of a crush on him!
      Either that or chance taking my cough and cold with me to Brighton to use the only opportunity I'm likely to have to see 'Killing of the Sacred Deer' (with the equally fanciable Mr Colin Farrell). Oh, such a trial, these decisions!

  7. Heartbreaking, beautifully written and acted. Ben Whishaw is a fave of mine. I've never heard of this series before but I'm going to watch all the episodes now on YouTube. Thanks for introducing me to it!

  11. I wish I had the words to say
    my feeling out loud.
    All I see now is darkness and steam.
    No more life. My love is gone.
    He could not kiss me goodbye.
