Godot time

Get home from the theatre to find my laptop flashing a notice at me saying:

'Godot: overdue'.

Which indeed he was, patiently, achingly, endlessly waited for in an extraordinary performance by Messrs Stewart, McKellen, Callow and Pickup. Difficult to single out particular moments but possibly the best piece of advice for all of us in these topsy-turvy times is Pozzo's: 'Dance first, think later; that's the natural order of things.'
