  • An empty stage
  • The promise of a new notepad/sketchbook

  • William Shakespeare - his ability to pour his soul out onto pages of pure poetry, that express love, hate, desire. When I read/act his plays, I get a real sense of what it is to feel.
  • Suzy Marston (my drama teacher) - the reason I wanted to become an actress. She taught me what it is to just be, gave me belief in myself and in the characters I portray. She made me realize my love for Theatre and words.
  • Antonin Artuad - for creating Theatre that attacks the senses, that makes audiences feel uncomfortable and all their morals challenged. For daring to give Theatre a purpose other than just to "entertain"
  • Peter Brook - a pure genius. Has created the closest thing this world has to magic.

  • Sleepy, as though my mind is clouded
  • In a dream state, content and wondering
  • Like sprawling out on my bed and listening to Laura Marling whilst finishing my drawings of the characters from R and J
  • Thirsty for tea
  • Expectant, I think tomorrow will bring good things

  • Fragile, as though some one will touch me and splinter me, cracks spreading like wild roots, and then I'll slowly fall into pieces
  • Like getting lost in a beautiful place
  • Like sitting under the tree where we've carved our names and sprawl across a blanket reading
  • full of rum (from last night)
  • that philly-cheese should NOT be mixed together no matter what the lady on the telly says
