As I write this blog I am in Connecticut doing the filming for the pilot of our TV show. I have been overwhelmed at how it has all come about and fallen into place, and by the amazing professional people who are helping with this project. All of the crew have an understanding of metaphysics, so there is no clash of ideals on the set. I have been doing film and TV for many years now and for me it is second nature – even to the sitting around which is a part of every shoot one does with a crew. Cameras have to be set up, sets have to be put in place, and in-between one might get to do a bit of filming or discuss future filming.
As I said, I am so used to it, and we know we have an amazing show ready to go. For me, though, the filming is no problem. My problem lies in the fact that I mostly have to leave home and stay in hotels. If I do come back in another life I want to be a hotel designer! All over the world I think I have only had a couple of hotel rooms which have been perfect in every way. Most of them leave a lot to be desired.
Our first hotel room here in Connecticut could really be called the hotel room from hell! It was just terrible. From the shower bath (which I could not fit into because it was so small even Alan had problems, and he is not big like me) to the toilet seat (which had a bottom and top that did not fit well, when one sat down on it, the seat moved and for some reason trapped the thigh no matter how big or small you are). The water pressure in the bathroom was so noisy it frightened even Spirit! LOL. They did move us the following day, but the new room only had a double bed, and Alan had to sleep on a cot bed on the floor. Within 12 hours after moving into that room the wardrobe (which was a rack coming out of the wall) fell off the wall, so clothes then had to be put on the shower rail. We now have a luggage cart as the wardrobe in our room! They have offered us another room with a king-sized bed which will be available on Wednesday, but we have decided we will cope with what we have until we return home – about a week away. We just could not cope with moving again.
