The Framework Blog captures all things worth mentioning that I lay my eyes on, concerning television, films and books. When possible I will use facts and spice it with humour and fiction. That was the intention.
Now beware dear readers... for it all went hilariously wrong!

August Is Hot: Bringing The GRRRRR..
August Is Hot: theme: BRINGING THE GRRRRR..!
This month and this year is very important for you, dear readers, enjoyers of RA´s works of art.
There is an announcement to be made!
In August I am hitting the respectable age of 40 just as bad as Mr. A.! Cheers!
As I´m not the main driver in this story,
and like to keep my private troubles private,
this is a fact I can´t deny.
Do I want it to slip in the conversation?
Does it really matter?
You´ll find out...
..as you are on a quest to find
RULER OF THE ZODIAC ATTITUDE!
(just as previous year: loads of reflective nonsense)
My theme is about Bringing The GRRR.., because everyone has to bring some daring into their lives.
It´s a long story why I finally went into improv acting.
I kinda knew I was funny and could write ridiculous nonsense,
but that´s not something you´ll risk your mortgage on.
So I had a string of office jobs to secure the paychecks and right now I´m back to square one,
looking for another job once again and improv acting is still a hobby.
If you´re shy like me, I strongly recommend it, even for writing purposes.
I now regularly visit the rehearsals for a play about Alzheimer´s disease.
I was asked to do lights and sound at a couple of occasions (!)
Acting and learning from stage directions is very useful.
Foremost, I learned what makes a scene work.
You learn about what makes people tick and face your own perks.
The thing is, this second year I was notified in my improv acting group
that I was struggling with ´acceptance´ in taking ´gifts´.
I also came up with weird hilarious suggestions,
which was hard for my team members to use in the improv scene.
At some point I feared I was not welcome anymore.
We recently had a good coach who explained how to use my input to the team´s best effort
and how to use acceptance more fully.
Now my suggestions are fully accepted, with thanks to an acclaimed brilliant hilarious scene,
knowing I had your receptive support on this daringly funny blog!
In January I mentioned I have a wonderful writing project in the drawer and in the back of my mind.
I was thinking about the story, whether it was not full of cliches and treaded paths.
The fear of rejection...
So I observed tv-series, plays and films. Have to finish the thing and see where it takes me!
Coming August Is Hot posts I will put the focus back on RA.
