Because it's Wood Wednesday ...
I adore this pic. It's from Corduroy Magazine, scanned by annwyn55. Just like Elijah, I had piano lessons as a child. Since then, I've had long periods in my life when I've hardly played at all, and others where I've played every chance possible. I love it, but I've never been much good, just didn't have the patience for hours of practicing scales, and I suspect that's much how Elijah has been too. It's daft, I know, but it gives me a thrill to have that little connection with him. It's the same with the crosswords, I do one every day, and I always remember that he does them too, and I have a lasting image in my mind of him pouring over his crossword on the OM set. *sigh*
In the Corduroy interview, Elijah talks about his 'Moulin Rouge' audition. I remember him talking about this in a Canadian radio interview he did with Franka when he was working on 'All I Want'. I was amazed then, I didn't think he'd be interested in doing a musical. But then, some time ago, he revealed that he absolutely loves 'The Sound of Music', something his friends tease him about. You're full of surprises, Mr
As I type this, I'm listening to 'Witch & Wizard' in my headphones - and I'm absolutely LOVING it!!
