A CERTAIN YOUNG MAN…

Gene-Kelly-in-An-American-in-ParisHas completed his portfolio and is packing his “off to Europe” bag to sit for an entrance exam at a school of design… I will be quiet here on blog-world for the next couple of days. Best wishes, my friends! Vickie

    All good fortune to the talented young fellah and soothing thoughts to *you*, Vickie. He is going to knock it out of the park. Great choice of image!
    PS The description “a certain young man” reminds me of Finlay Currie’s Magwitch scaring Pip in David Lean’s wonderful version of Great Expectations. 🙂

    Are you having a flashback for me? In 1999/2000 that’s exactly what I was doing. I was going to London- somehow things changed and I ended up at school in Spain 🙂
    Best of luck to the certain young man!

    P.S. Don’t worry, I’m sure he won’t end up like me!!!

      If he’s half as accomplished as you are I will be very pleased. xox, V

        You’re too generous! Accomplished isn’t the right word. I’m occasionally, accidentally successful 😀

    I would say, “Good luck,” but from what I’ve seen he hardly needs it. It will be more a matter of, “Congratulations!” I’m certain. 🙂 Love the accompanying photo.

      I can feel the wishes all around us — can a person be both buoyant and anxious? Yes!

    Is the design school in Europe?

      He’s where his icons studied… Antwerp…

        Anvers is a very fine city, they will look after him there.

        It’s beautiful, but where are all the trees?

        Good question… wasn’t Antwerp synonymous with printing? Perhaps they were all cut down for presses and pulp for paper!

    mmm, I think you will “leave” for Paris very soon, because that “certain young man” will not go back to the US, well, I am quite sure of it (haha).

    What a wonderful adventure for him, I am sure it will be a huge success. 🙂 (and more importantly, great fun as well).

      Whatever the results, it’ll be great for him.

      Very exciting, now I’m just wondering if he’s followed our instructions on how to activate his phone for international use… 😉
