an enormous yes

A great film - war is stupid. Shock and then delight to see Katrin Cartlidge there. She was always wonderful. I saw her in 2001, performing in Boy Gets Girl at the Royal Court in London. Bought the play at the same time for reasons undisclosed.

From an e-mail to a friend yesterday
"...I love this juxtaposition from late in the book (Stephen Fry's The Ode Less Traveled, which I hold dearly):
On me your voice falls as they say love should, Like an enormous yes.
P. Larkin
I reckon an enormous yes beats seven kinds of crap out of an enormous no.
S. Fry
I have been trying to say yes to things all this week..."
