First day of rehearsal today.
I had a date with Ophelia the other night. She says a lot of words that I don’t understand, so I made a rhubarb crisp (with some fresh from the garden rhubarb that my friend Jenn gave me – so tart!), and sat down with the Oxford English Dictionary.
Well, sort of. The free version online, that is.
I really wish the Saskatoon Public Library would offer access to the real dictionary online to library card holders, but I understand that it’s very expensive to do something like that. Still, the free version is pretty good. Not nearly as exciting as the real thing, though. And yes, I get excited over the Oxford English Dictionary. Who doesn’t? It’s bloody amazing.
The crisp was delicious, and now I know what Ophelia is saying. The first step is done – understand on an intellectual basis what’s going on. Next step, make it live. Find the why. To badly quote Picasso, “say it with brushes and paint!”
