No doubt you are prepared well. I know you will blow everyone away – it cannot be any other way. May you feel the best wishes, love, attention, strength, confidence and good vibes from your well-wishers today, as you are preparing for the first public performance of The Crucible, just like I am feeling the same – for altogether different reasons – from the amazing people who have chosen to follow your career. They are a very special bunch, whose combined love and kindness is an (almost) tangible force! And you deserve them as much as you deserve your success.
This picture talks to me of placidity, confidence, humility and balance. For whatever reason this is giving me some strength today. By tomorrow, I hope to see radiant brilliant smiles!
Break a leg, R___. Your performance will be on at the same time tonight as my team playing in the World Cup. If they win, and you blow them away on the stage, I will know that *everything* will be ok.
