“Where are the songs of Spring? Aye, where are they?” ― John Keats
The days are starting to get a little longer, the weather may even be getting warmer (we can hope). Snowdrops and daffodils are trying to bloom, even in the face of storms and floods! There’s an awful lot of doom and gloom around Let’s take a break from it all and relax and enjoy the start of Spring
Join us from 8-10, Wednesday 11th March for some much needed March Mirth, Merriment and Madness
“It’s simply that in every crowd there’s a twerp. All any twerp needs to do is protest loud and long, and he or she will get attention from other twerps who’ll go along for the ride–after all, if such people didn’t exist, the Ricki Lake Show wouldn’t have an audience.” — Terry Pratchett
“Have you ever been in love? Horrible, isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up. You build up all these defences. You build up this whole armour, for years, so nothing can hurt you, then one stupid person, no different from any other stupid person, wanders into your stupid life… You give them a piece of you. They don’t ask for it. They do something dumb one day like kiss you, or smile at you, and then your life isn’t your own anymore. Love takes hostages. It gets inside you. It eats you out and leaves you crying in the darkness, so a simple phrase like “maybe we should just be friends” or “how very perceptive” turns into a glass splinter working its way into your heart. It hurts. Not just in the imagination. Not just in the mind. It’s a soul-hurt, a body-hurt, a real gets-inside-you-and-rips-you-apart pain. Nothing should be able to do that. Especially not love. I hate love.”― Neil Gaiman, The Kindly Ones
It’s coming up to Hallmark Day and as is tradition, we’re celebrating, Cabinet Style With a show about the Darker aspects of Love
