Well, I Never... [Jul. 13th, 2019|05:37 pm]
Tony Grist
My sister recently got back in touch with a childhood friend who fondly remembers being cast in one of the silent movies I wrote and directed in my late teens. It was a jolly little drama about black magic and demonic possession- and we shot it with a wind-up 8mm movie camera in and around Hadlow Castle- which is as gothick a location as could be wished for. The film is a lost masterpiece and my ambitions to be the next Jean-Luc Godard soon faded but this woman credits her involvement in the project with firing her life-long interest in the performing arts.

Which goes to show you never fully understand what you're doing or how you may be affecting and influencing other people...

There is so much truth in this. I taught for many years and am still surprised when a former student tells me about the good influence I had on their lives. So many went on to become language teachers (they say) because of how much they appreciated my way of teaching and my enthusiasm for my subject.

Those revelations are something, aren't they? Recently I learned that I was a heroine and role model for a whole troop of neighborhood kids when I was a teenager and they were my babysittees and friends of my much younger siblings. Who'd a thunk it?
