REVIEW: The Broken Heart, Sam Wanamaker Theatre
What purpose could be served by 'translating' the play into modern language, unless the proposal was to mount the revival using that idiom? Far better, surely, to understand the text itself, why and when it was written, in order to be able to ...

I have spent countless hours studying photographs of people, while considering the angles, the lighting, and the editing the photographer used. I love the fact that photography has the amazing ability to transport us to a different time, or place with one single shot. It was not until I started blogging that I decided to take photography more seriously. With camera in hand, I started experimenting with photographs of my apartment, of friends, and family. It was after experimenting in this way that I realized my passion for photography. I have no formal training or background in this field, but I realize that passion can open your eyes to the impossible, so not only did I invest in the proper equipment I also spent the necessary time to learn everything I could to enhance the... I enjoy, and appreciate the opportunity to photograph bloggers, couples, influencers who make an impact in their profession, families, and also lifestyle type setting. One of my biggest regrets is that I did not purchase a cuckoo clock from a local retailer. Think modern mirror with stripes and metallics. However, the husband said you can’t have a “fake Cuckoo clock. However, I still think of that clock often.
This thought has been deeply ingrained in my mind ever since, which puzzles me, excites me and drives me to put into words. As to what sort of thought I have come across, you will need a bit of patience to follow me closely to the point. The seasonal clock ticked calmly pointing to spring, when all the living things on earth seemed to get a life in time. The verdure along the winding footpath cast multilayered shades of greenness, and the usual sound of flapping birds bitted the perfect rhythm while we strolled into the deep of the woods. It seemed fascinating enough when JG raised a question about the speed of light. Yes, “the Speed of Light”. The fact that we still can not go to live beyond the earth became a little bothering and I couldn’t help asking why. Aristotle, Newton and Maxwell, the greatest minds in history, phenomenally helped us to get where we are now, not to mention the greatest scientific giant Einstein, who basically shaped the modern world for human beings so far. However, I would dare to put a question to it to raise awareness: The concept that the speed of light is a constant, a limit to everything that can travel as fast in the universe, may have constrained us to go beyond the Milky Way Galaxy, perhaps.
There is also a volume control for those Keeping time and the instruments that keep our time have long held fascination for scientists and design enthusiasts. Since the early 17th century when Galileo Galilei discovered that pendulums could be used to record time, scientists began working on the and sometimes stuffy grandfather clock is the endlessly humorous cuckoo clock. Early records show that bird sounds have long been used to call out the time and the modern cuckoo clock , also a pendulum regulated device, came into its own in the middle Keeping time and the instruments that keep our time have long held...
