And I'm Gone...
By the time many of you read this, Mark and I will be on our way on The Big Adventure.
Wish us luck.
We're catching a train to Bangor early in the morning and will start our walk to our first show, in Capel Curig, with a very heavy rucksack and an intrepid spirit. Mark and I did a dress rehearsal tonight for a select audience, it went very well indeed so it seems the show is the least of our worries.
I must confess that I am very nervous, as well as excited, it is a tough and quite amazing journey we have ahead of us and please take time to spare a thought for two ramblers with a show as their only currency and a good tale to tell.
Saying goodbye to Marie this morning was very hard, I managed not to cry but if I linger too long on the thought of her beautiful face and how she feels in my arms I may start to buckle. As we parted she said that I reminded her of a tortoise or a snail, I think that in terms of speed if not look she is, as always, spot on. I love you Marie, you are my muse and my reason and I am forever yours.
We went out together last night, a bit of a last date before the tour, for a marvelous burger and milkshake and then an utterly wonderful show at the Royal Court called Motortown, which I can't recommend enough, it was utterly spellbinding.
Right, time for bed, I'll see you all on the other side...
