Tonight was to be film night. Actually, first we were to listen to Ireland’s National Broadcaster transmitting live from the National Concert Hall in Dublin, Stravinsky, featuring the great bass (or baritone?) Seosamh.
We listened to Seosamh singing Stravinsky. I must confess – it’s pretty challenging and not precisely charts-type music. Great credit to Seosamh and his friends in the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir!
In the end, the film night did not happen. But I have great plans. Friday night: movie night. Friday, 19 Feb, 7pm: Fitzcarraldo (Klaus Kinsky: “My Daddy was Irish”) on the big screen. All invited. Fitzcarraldo it story of Brian Sweeney Fitzgerald, an extremely determined man who intends to build an opera house in the middle of a jungle, starring Klaus Kinski and Claudia Cardinale, runtime:2 hours, 38 minutes – like a good marathon:) Fitzcarraldo was one of the original Dreamboaters! It’s a great movie.
We had two physios from the community here today, working with Pádraig, full of energy and great ideas! And Pádraig was doing amazing things: lifting and stretching his foot, his legs, his fingers. All such great and positive developments.
Had a long conversation with a German rehab specialist today getting together a plan to change rehab for sABI in Ireland. – I get the feeling it’s all coming together, far too slow , but it’s coming together. It is.
