A blog of numbers…
Just flying over Singapore, 34000 feet up.
Half way through an 11,500 mile trip from New Zealand to UK.
I’ve just done 7 screenings in 3 days of the all-new IN SEARCH OF CHOPIN.
Good audiences but total folk in the 100s – smaller screens in NZ.
I did seven intros and seven Q and As. Total time talking: 7 hours.
Press: 3 hours.
Hours worked per day – 20. Length of trip 6 days. 120 hours worked. And I’m not joking.
At airport, had some time to tidy up emails. Deleted my Sent box from last two years….20,000 of them – thus 10,000 a year, hence average of 30 a day…
Ran 9km along Auckland waterfront. Perk of the job. Over the last year, I have run in hills of Santa Fe, the waterfront of Chicago, Stanley Park in Vancouver and Central Park in NY. Total KM run…er, lots.
Films on the way…7
Concerts filmed for IN SEARCH OF BACH… 2. Years to completion….er….5? 10?
Current job satisfaction on a scale of one to ten: 9.
4320 miles flown from Auckland, 7180 to go to London…
