Don’t Judge Me

Posted on

Consuelo Parra art

Don’t judge me
as I do not judge
to see is not to know,
though don’t despair

I care not for
your shallow thoughts
and naive comments,
I don’t need your pity
for I show no emotion
and shed no tears

I find comfort in silence
and loneliness is a friend,
for solitude is my savour
in the dim light of day

a stranger to myself
I sit here
in this cruel, cold world
accepting what it brings.

I’d be lying if I said I was completely happy with this piece. I found myself well out of my comfort zone attempting prose for the first time. I’m far more familiar with rhyming poetry but I’m desperate to try it. I want to be able to experiment with styles of poetry. I’d appreciate any feedback no matter how critical.

Consuelo Parra – Digital Art

I came across yet another impressive digital artist whose work I just had to share with you guys. Consuelo parra’s creations ooze emotion and energy. Words that spring to mind when trying to describe her work are solitude, silence, Nature, dark, gothic, beauty and contemplation. I’m completely mesmerized by each piece she has produced. Here’s a few of my favourite pictures although there are so many to choose from.

Ghost the Musical – A Short Review

Posted on

In the run-up to Richard and Caissie’s transfer to Broadway with Ghost the musical I had to share with you my thoughts about currently successful West End shows. I heard mixed reviews to begin with so I knew I had to see for myself. I must admit I was a little reluctant at first as I knew that nothing could better such a classic well-loved film. For those of you who haven’t got a clue what I’m talking about, this is the musical theatre version of the legendary Patrick Swayze film in which his character Sam Wheat is killed in cold blood during a high point in his relationship with artist Molly Jensen. Caught in-between worlds; Sam, with the help of opinionated and witty medium Oda Mae Brown, solve his murder.

Considering that the original film was made over 20 years ago, the modernisation of the theatre production doesn’t affect the way in which the story is portrayed. In fact the story line stays true to the film with only minor alterations. If you are a big fan of the film then you will notice that they have re-written parts and missed bits out to make it more adaptable for the stage. But don’t let this put you off.

They couldn’t have chosen a better cast. All the mains have an incredible stage presence and the choreography is amazing. For those of you that have no recollection of who Richard Fleeshman is, then don’t worry about it. He will build more credibility in the West End than he ever did in his previous career. Accompanied by Caissie Levy, the pair of them will blow you away with their vocals. The songs are a masterpiece alone and even the overture will send shivers down your spine.

So much emotion has been poured into this musical which is how it should be. You start to feel as though the characters are real. Whoopi Goldberg eat your heart out, Sharon D Clarke as Oda Mae Brown will have you rolling in the isles and you couldn’t get a better villain  than Ivan De Freitas who plays Willy Lopez.

The whole show is visually stunning throughout and on occasions will leave you open-mouthed and gasping in disbelief. The illusions and special effects are phenomenal. You have to see it to believe it. That’s why I don’t want to give too much away. But if you walk into the theatre thinking that you are going to get a Patrick Swayze double and the show is going to be exactly the same as the film then your wrong. Go with an open mind and enjoy.
