Thursday En route to the matinee, I look up a favourite website, Letters of Note. Sidelined by links to its archive, I find words from Ted Hughes to his son, advising him to “live like a mighty river”. A good thought to carry with me into a two-show day.
Friday I’ve been drooling at the prospect of a Cate Blanchett/Woody Allen collaboration, so take in an afternoon showing of Blue Jasmine.
Saturday On the Tube home from the theatre, read the adventures of James Adair, in Rowing After the White Whale, about crossing the Indian Ocean in a rowing boat: funny and terrifying.
