It wasn’t the year in which I figured everything out …

… but nonetheless quite a bit.

Lucas North (Richard Armitage) invites Maya Lahan (Laila Rouass) into his apartment in Spooks 9.3. My cap, edited so you can see the door more easily. Still love the profile.

This is what appeared a year ago on my birthday, and so I was trying to write about it again today. Got a lot further in thinking about it — too much stuff was going on then. Probably will publish tomorrow. Thank you again, Richard Armitage, for appearing in that beard on my birthday. (Yes, it happened on my birthday in NZ, which wasn’t quite my birthday where I was when I saw it, and today it’s still my birthday where I am, though the blog is in London so it’s a day later on the blog.) It was like a sign from G-d.

  20. Happy Birthday. And personally, I’ve never had a year in which I figured everything out. I’ve had a few glimmers of understanding, but they’re fleeting. Best wishes.

  23. Indeed, Happy, Happy Birthday!!!!!!!

    I’m so happy I found you through this blog this past year! You (and the loose confederacy of fellow bloggers) have made London so much more than just a ‘workplace’ this year.

    Here’s to (at least) another year of your observational and written genius in any and all matters of interest to you!

  30. A tad late, aber von Herzen, I wish you the very best for this coming year with a lot of thrilling encounters and with enough time for living your dreams (at least a bit!). I hope you had yourself thoroughly spoilt yesterday. May your passion for writing and a certain actor create furthermore of your wonderful posts, which I (and of course we all) enjoy so profundly. Looking back, you’ve had a really special gift for your last year’s birthday. This press conference/interview was a real bombshell.

  34. Wishing you a splendid birthday and a great year! Sometimes I feel that it is the attempt to figure things out that is the point, that each “Aha!” moment just lures us onward. May you be blessed with clarity and inspiration every day. (And more RA, naturally.)
