I could only stay for half tonight’s Inglehearts’ session as we were booked to see Vivaldi by Candlelight at The Hall for Cornwall. In the corridor at the school was another paper sculpture lantern – The Troon.
We thoroughly enjoyed the concert by The Locrian Ensemble.
The Cornish Studies Library in Redruth now has our Perthi Kov Exhibition of the people we researched for ‘Until the Day Break’, all put together by Lesley Trotter and me and designed by Anna Oliver. It looks good in this venue! If you are local, go in and have a look. If you are from somewhere else in the world, please click on the photo to be able to read about our fascinating characters.
Bees and butterflies are enjoying our Agapanthus flowers as are we.
Here is a gallery of photos from last Monday when Mydd and Josh celebrated their marriage at Godrevy Beach, Cornwall. Click on any photo for detail. It was a day so full of love that it was tangible. The air was alive with love and laughter, smiles and serenity. May their life together be long and happy and full of beauty.
If you live in Cornwall, please go to see this amazing show in Trelawarren – it touches every part of your soul…. Wolf’s Child by WildWorks.
The following is from today’s Guardian newspaper – the ten best theatre shows to see this summer.
2 Wolf’s Child
Bill Mitchell, the founder of Wildworks, a company specialising in creating theatre in which the natural landscape is an integral part of the experience, died earlier this year. He was a theatre visionary and his legacy lives on in this reworked version of a show first seen at the Norfolk & Norwich festival in 2015. This is theatre that encourages you to stray from the path, even when wolves lurk in the wilderness. Their howls hang in the air in this story that follows a wolf mother and her wards.
Trelowarren Estate, Helston, 11-30 July
Here I write about the wonderful Bill Mitchell – https://mybeautfulthings.com/2017/05/03/bill-mitchell-our-friend-next-door-2121951-1442017/
We have been working in the garden all day and my camera has been left untouched but the garden looks a lot better – hedges trimmed, slabs swept, last pots planted up and rubbish all taken to the dump. Instead of my photos, here today is the article that appeared in the May edition of Cornwall Today about our production ‘Until the Day Break’. Click on any photo to make the writing clearer.
I had a brainwave today about where to put our light-balls.
I made a Coffee and Pecan Cake for our Perthi Kov reunion today, the plan being to have tea and cake and to share ideas about the whole experience.
St Euny Church was buzzing again this afternoon as people met friends, old and newly made during the production, and shared reminiscences. Click on any photo for a larger version. One of the gang has made a beautiful Memory book which has inspired others to do the same.
