The success of the first phase of my project is the sweetest of feeling, the sweeter for begin shared with audiences, supporters and exquisitely with my creative team. It has been a tremendous journey , involving many different people in so many ways. This blog testifies to all the ups and downs twists and turns along the way .
It is indeed marvellous , magical even to fulfill such a big vision, a dream that manifests, in the most beautiful way . To then luxuriate in the overwhelming bliss of 'climbing the mountain' so to speak and then to admire the breath taking view infused with total upliftment. Such superb moments of excellent achievement are to be completely savored not rushed..
A big up and big thanks , in particular those Lesta audiences who came over two amazing nights to see our show, that proved to be so fab, the audience looked lovely with their glow sticks !
