Not just sentimental, also a cock-eyed optimist

I wonder if we should take bets on how long. That said, this has got to hurt, not to see the end of their project through, and my heart goes out to them all.

  1. I’m going to have to put my tin hat on here but this is a first world problem. Get a grip man – there are people with compromised immune systems fearing for their lives and if you are so bothered about theatre bringing us all together film it and stick it up on Netflix or even YouTube. And let us discuss it in the safety of our own homes here on Me and Richard ( other forums also apply). I understand it’s disappointing, especially for the fans who were travelling distances to see it but people are losing their lives and livelihoods and we are all having to make changes for the greater good and to flatten the curve.

    I’m sure many will disagree but I’ll be off now to reorganise the next two months of my professional life and sanitise all my surfaces.

    • Actually – on rereading the tweet I realise I’m being a bit harsh. He’s not whinging. He’s just sad about the hiatus which is fair enough I suppose.

      • yeah, I think it’s normal to be sad about the disruption of (whatever sort of) projects. You work on something for a long time and you feel it expresses what you want it to and then it’s destroyed. I’m feeling that way about moving my classes online. Maybe not as emotionally as he is.

          • at the same time — I am burnt out on everything — politics, dad’s situation, teaching too many classes, now coronavirus (hopefully we won’t kill each other) … I’m too tired to cry very hard about much at this point.

            • Yes I think my reaction was a bit of burn out too. I’ve been working in an underfunded NGO forever and now we are having to work even harder to make things work for a vulnerable client group in this brave new world. He is entitled to feel sad of course but I don’t really have the energy to feel very sorry for him I’m afraid.

              I do, however, feel sorry for Servetus stuck at home with Dad!

                A lighter note; this morning (it’s morning in the Netherlands) my fever broke.

              • Yeah — there are groups that are going totally unnoticed in this situation that are going to be stuck in huge holes — homeless, prison populations. So really dad and I should be okay. However, we really wlll be glued at the hip because all bars have now closed and restaurants are only open for takeout and delivery. His breakfast round will be unavailable and that’s 50 percent of his social stimulation for the week.
