Break a Leg, Mr A!

No doubt you are prepared well. I know you will blow everyone away – it cannot be any other way. May you feel the best wishes, love, attention, strength, confidence and good vibes from your well-wishers today, as you are preparing for the first public performance of The Crucible, just like I am feeling the same – for altogether different reasons – from the amazing people who have chosen to follow your career. They are a very special bunch, whose combined love and kindness is an (almost) tangible force! And you deserve them as much as you deserve your success.

This picture talks to me of placidity, confidence, humility and balance. For whatever reason this is giving me some strength today. By tomorrow, I hope to see radiant brilliant smiles!

Break a leg, R___. Your performance will be on at the same time tonight as my team playing in the World Cup. If they win, and you blow them away on the stage, I will know that *everything* will be ok.

  1. Love, love that RA photo of yours. Your two longed-for outcomes will be unfolding while I’m fast asleep I’m afraid, but I’ll do my best to send positive vibes from my side of the world to yours, Guylty just before I go to bed. As for the most important one of all that you need to have happen, my thoughts are with you, be assured. Chin up, kid!

    • Thank you – I can feel it, actually, and it is a good feeling. The chin is up, in defiance…
      Meanwhile I am channeling a tiny bit of my available positivity towards Mr A. I know he gets more than enough, but I want to contribute, too…

    • I couldn’t agree more. I need a calm head on me, keep the panic under control. I am sure that approach works for other situations that are about to unfold *right now*, too.

  3. That photo will always be an inspiration to be brave, nice and strong. He has always been, and he need to be today, in this very special (and crucial) day of his life. I wish him and you all the best. My thoughts will be with you 🙂

    • Thank you, C – I feel a bit bad about sucking energy… Very soon the curtain will be raised on the Old Vic. I imagine he is feeling the nerves in his stomach right now. Maybe they are all in a circle, sharing their strength and their confidence. It definitely helps not to be alone…

      • Indeed. Being alone doubles the effort and stress. Right now He is in full performance… let’s hope it goes well for everyone! ❤

    • My team is Germany, Perry. And they are playing about half an hour after the Crucible starts in London. Probably going to end at about the same time, too. I am not really concerned about Germany today (i.e. I am confident they don’t need my good wishes), but I will teleport some good vibes to RA instead.

      • Hahaha, I´m a bright spark as always… As being not in the least interested in football, it took me a moment to realize what team you mean, though all neighbours are indoors to watch the match.
        My fingers are crossed for Mr. A, massive palpitations on my side.

    • My stomach is already fluttering. I can imagine it all to well what it must be like, to be waiting in the dressing room…. But I know that the moment he steps on the stage, the nerves will be forgotten and he’ll play for his life – and for his audience. I am so looking forward to the first reviews and reports..

    • I’m sure he *is* ready for success, but I think he’ll still be appreciative for it, too. I expect lots of deflection of praise from him in the coming weeks :-D.

    • Thank you, Tree, and much appreciated. RA will be the mother of all Proctors. Well, or maybe the father of all Proctors 😀 Whatever, I actually expect reports of scorched fangirl dresses rolling in tonight… Hope those lucky sisters will let us know what occurred…

  5. Toi, toi, toi, Richard!! Ich glaube ganz fest an Dich!
    Today, this is an especially exciting evening. Hopefully the “Schland-Jungs” do not disappoint.
    Richard does have a great mind to do whatever he does… No real risk there. But actually, I’m nervous! Just 5 min to go….
    Above all, you’re in my mind, S.
    Hugs.

  7. Oh, Guylty, weißt du es denn nicht? Die positive Energie des Daumendrückens kann man gleichzeitig in alle Richtungen schicken. Sie wirken trotzdem.

    Meine Daumen werden weiter gedrückt, für dich und deine Familie.
    Und außerdem für RA und The Crucible.

      • Zu “potenziert” kann ich nichts sagen, aber von der gleichmäßigen und gleich starken Ausbreitung in alle gewünschten Richtungen gleichzeitig bin ich überzeugt.

        Meine Daumen werden weiterhin gedrückt, und ich hoffe, dass alles gut wird.

  8. I love this picture too, G…. I see my inbox is already overflowing with great feedback for RA, but I am forcing myself to go chronologically (well right now at least 🙂 As far as the vibes you (and he) are receiving today from us – kindness and giving always come back to you, don’t you know 🙂 Wish I could do more for you.

  9. Hi Sonja, I have been thinking about you and your dad, and just wanted to send you greetings and let you know you are missed. You don’t have to answer this, I am sure you are busy. Hope things are improving for you and your family. ).If there is anything I can do, please let me know. Would your Dad like a card from California or some dates? ( the kind that grow on trees, not the going out kind) Or a book with photographs? I just thought maybe he doesn’t know anyone in California and he might like something from here. Movie stuff? Surfing stuff? He must be a really nice person to have produced such a thoughtful and creative daughter. Hugs to you and yours, Kathy

    • Dear Kathy – you are so sweet, thank you for that. I must really write a blog post and thank you everyone properly – it is a great consolation for me to receive these messages.
      Unfortunately there are no changes and no (good) news here. Thank you for your kind, kind message. Love, S. x
