For the past few days my right ear has been feeling blocked and stuck up, today it feels almost totally deaf, I’m sure it must be a cold or some such so I’m not over worrying, but it is very annoying especially as we start production week, or bump-in as it is known here.
Anyway, in an attempt to sort it out I went for a Hopi ear candle session at a therapy centre round the corner from the academy. Interestingly afterwards the old Chinese ‘uncle’ who treated me said, without him knowing why I’d gone, that a lot of black smoke was coming out of that ear more that the left. It feels a bit looser, but still semi deaf, though now sounds a bit squelchy in there.
At the same time I had a half hour back and shoulder massage. Bloody hell! Not the relaxing ones we’d expect in the UK, a right old Chinese pressure point, beating up of a massage. I thought I was going to snap. Certainly feel a lot looser but could do with a relaxing one know as a treat. Typical, I finally decide to treat myself to a massage after over a year and I end up with remedial treatment.
They were focussing the lights today. The set arrives this evening and I’ll wander over for a look see later. Bit of a nerve wracking time as I’ve not really seen what it looks like, however, it’s exciting as it takes it onto the next level. Exciting for the actors too.
