Title: "I can't go on, I'll go on." Samuel Beckett
Post by: philoctetes on April 14, 2021, 10:47:25 PM
Hello all.

I've been around for a long, long time.

Currently listening to Scarlatti and Haydn (also my most recent purchases).

But, I now mainly listen to electronic music.

It is great to see you again Philo. It has been a very long time.

Welcome back from me too.

My favourite play stage direction is definitely at the end of 'Waiting for Godot' (forgive misquotes) when one character says to the other one:

'Shall we go?'

the other replies:

'Yes, let's go'.

and the stage direction states '(nobody moves)'

Hurrah!  Welcome back.  There can never be too many rational voices around.
