I continue in the Agatha Christie style titles. I need at least that. Besides, it’s a very suitable title.
Objectively it’s very good news.
For Altair and Dubai, it’s really excellent.
For me… well.
I just spent the whole day trying to cope with it. Sometimes, I feel myself a little fragile.
And then it’s good.
Here’s the news: I – well “I” yes for the moment – am invited to spend the whole month of September in Dubai to exhibit and develop Altair.
This comes almost directly from the Ministry of Tourism.
Last year I would have danced the whole day.
This year. Well, I asked to do all the possible hours and even the impossible ones. The pandemic didn’t kill me – on the other hand my bank account is burnt out, yes. I could have sent Jean – he’s better than me and Altair on the virtual side – it’s mostly him. But
I went to the bank. The girl was nice, that’s not the problem. She said, yes, but you know, that doesn’t mean Altair will exist.
I know. I know.
I was a little stupid, by the way. For Jean, it wasn’t so much money, I should have said I wanted to buy a sofa (and it’s true, mine is dead, it looks like a hippopotamus on the side).
I still have a few days to answer: yes / no / can you program me next year ? With answer 3, I will be ultra motivated to do anything and everything and be able to finance that in the end.
It’s a rigged game this business world.
Whatever the answer, it’s still a great success for Altair. That’s why I wanted to share it.
All they got was my pro Innovations file – and I hadn’t even registered for this year.
They contacted me in early August. I asked for details. I thought about it. I badly sorted. I’m not going to apologize a thousand years for not having any money either. So I explained the problem – I explained everything by the way, no Altair is not a start up and I don’t have any first figures to show and and and… I sent the Innovations file and I didn’t hire Altair.
Result: I’m just invited. And I can’t go. On Monday, I’ll face the hourly and financial disaster of the coming year. And almost no hours in the theatre – on top of that.
Well – that said, with the virus maybe I couldn’t go. I didn’t know that the European Union had opened the borders with the Emirates.
If that’s the case, it’s the same thing that happened to Italy at the end of March.
I’m disgusted – but less so.
If I don’t give any sign of life on Monday, it’s normal. I will be at the bottom of the abyss of my disgust. I’m going to try anyway. I promised, a little unwisely – that’s right, to keep writing… for a long time. I can still try to keep my promises.
In fact, this is not very important. What is important is that Altair was noticed at this point.
I’m disgusted, yes, but still a little proud. We didn’t work that badly.
Featured Image : boxing bands – so that I don’t forget to take up boxing again, this year it will be a vital emergency. I’m going to cry, since the time I let myself go. But it’s the only way I know how to take shots without giving in to anger.
