365 Days, Day 223

People also leave presence in a place even when they are no longer there (Andy Goldsworthy)

The difference between a theatre with and without an audience is enormous. There is a palpable, critical energy created by the presence of the audience (Andy Goldsworthy)

I hate tests. It's a really lousy way to judge a person's ability (Bill Paxton)

I put a flower in my hair, took my cupcakes and Big Yellow Shoes and made my mark. It may not have been the mark they are looking for, but my presence was left after my interview.

I failed the maths test though – I had no idea how to work out the Vat on net amounts and gross amounts. I have heard these words but do not know what they are. So I had to leave blank spaces on my page! If I had had more time, I could have drawn them something interesting…

I enjoyed my interview with my little captive audience. I felt like a magician when I took the Yellow Shoes out of the box at the end of the interview.

Having said that, I do not think I am what they are looking for. Pity, I could have been a good ‘mum’ to have around, to look after them.

A tree* (see today’s journal prompt) represents grounding, putting down your roots, connecting to Mother Nature. It can represent your ancestry lineage. Or it can just be something you observe.

I wish I had time to say more, but the ironing awaits!

  1. Hello my Sista across the sea. I have not read your blogs for such an age and have missed them. Sorry for me for missing out on your beauty and humour and wonderful quotes and beautiful images. Bah! to the maths test - test smesht! Can you take a piccie of your Big Yellow Shoes xxxx
    Thought of you the other day when I was at a cafe that had a whole range of cupcakes and said to Doug oooh Deidre would love those.

  2. Day 222 has a pic of part of the shoes. I didn't take the whole shoe for some reason. And I left the shoes with The Big Yellow Foot Production Company: I don't have space in my tiny house for big yellow shoes! hehe

    Cupcakes: yummy! Glad you think of me when you see cupcakes

  3. Could you tell me what was on your test? I have a similar test for a interview with a production company myself soon.

    Would just like to know types of questions
