Richard quotes from Sophocles, Yael Farber attends an Oedipus shoot, and I have just received a confirmation of my own to say I am pretty sure that Richard is back on UK soil. The postman just delivered an envelope stamped 23 March from the UK, containing an autograph request sent to the London address.
For the letter-writers and autograph hunters among you: The request had a turn-around time of three months. I sent my letter on 19 December (just in time for Chrimbo) and the reply was sent from the UK on 23 March. (I just had a bit of a cringe moment when I checked my letter. I had taken a picture of it for my records, and *ugh* I still feel mega-awkward about writing anything to him. However, I felt that it was important to explain that the autographs are for charity auctions, and so I updated RA on the proceeds of the fundraisers so far. Just for your own info: You have already raised a total of USD$6100 so far. Certainly NOT cringe-worthy, that!)
So, anyway, welcome back to Europe, Rich. We’re happy to have you, and Berlin is currently putting on really nice weather for your arrival! 21°C/70°F forecast for next weekend. Better get your
peaches ass to Berlin, quick! And thank you loads for granting me the request for autographs. That is much appreciated, and will hopefully enable your fans to support more good causes, soon.
Most fondly yours,
