Day 101

Level 2 Chi Kung. Microcosmic orbit.

A quiet day. Did various bits and pieces in the garden, dead-headed the roses and cut back the cursed ivy which is invading from next door. Got the kowhai and kakabeaks planted – can only hope that they will survive the snails better now that they are in the ground.

Top ten plays: number 4 is Equus, starring a young Daniel Radcliffe and Richard Griffiths (again), seen on the 21st of March 2007 with Barbara Edmonds. I liked Richard Griffiths (in this, and in general) and felt rather disloyal laughing when one of the Radio 4 comedians, in the course of riffing on the subject of how football style chants could potentially enhance so many aspects of English life, suggested that many a National Theatre production might be improved if the audience pitched in with something like: ‘He’s big. He’s round. He bounces on the ground. Richard Griffiths, Richard Griffiths.’
