Back in November I was feeling sorry for myself. Stuck with physical therapy twice a week [more on this, in Dutch, in this post], I needed to make plans for the new year that would clear my dark mood.
Along came a message.
A concert in London, the O2 Arena, in May.[toggle title=”For me, a once in a lifetime concert.”]
So, I bought the ticket (at 9:30AM, patiently refreshing the ticket website), without realizing the exact date: that would not be a problem (and, luckily, it wasn’t!).
On May 8 I will be one of about 22,000 people attending The Gift of Music, An Evening with Julie Andrews.
And yes, I’m a fan. Just this weekend I checked to see, and I have almost all her movies and most of her cd’s. I bought the audio version of her memoir, and I have listened to the poetry/songs/lullabies book.
Friday May 7 I will fly out to London and Monday May 10 I return. In the meantime, I will enjoy all of London (and perhaps a visit to Cambridge too), while sleeping in a hotel across from Liberty’s. A visit to the British Library is on my to-do list, hopefully I’ll have a chance to check out the new Anglo-Saxon hoard at the British Museum, and I’m going to see if the Tate has anything to my liking.
Mostly, however, and unsurprising, I’m looking forward to Saturday evening.[/toggle]
