"I had the pleasure of being one of the audience members when Shallal were performing in Penlee museum before Christmas. The performance was absolutely amazing and the one item I particularly enjoyed was the washing line poem. Would it be possible for you to either let me have a copy or inform me where I could have one.Thanking you in anticipation"
for those of you who weren't there:
A washing line most people think
Is to hang out your clothes to dry
But mine is special, I peg on mine
My special thoughts, my hopes, my fears
A dried red rose from my wedding bouquet
My first mothers day card, specially made
A valentines card, some photographs from long ago
when I was young and slim
Such memories they bring me
My dreams, my hopes, my prayers
These are the things that you will find upon my washing line.

It seems to be a time of year for thanking people and I can't thank Marjorie enough for all her support and friendship throughout Shallal Dance theatre's existence. I have learnt a lot from her and like all good friendships she has gently corrected and challenged me when necessary!
