Shakespeare Musings  
A few days ago, the Merriam-Webster word of the day was "bardolater"

bardolater   \bar-DAH-luh-ter\   noun
     : a person who idolizes Shakespeare


And, while I do not idolize Shakespeare, I do enjoy much of his work. Yesterday, I watched Much Ado About Nothing (the Kenneth Brannaugh version) and realized that it has been a very long time since I was involved in theatre of any sort... I think the last time may indeed have been when I played in some scenes of Taming of the Shrew... That was a very long time ago, though. I was a very different person then... but I still miss performing. Maybe once I step down, I'l try to organize something...

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more;
Men were deceivers ever;
One foot in sea and one on shore,
To one thing constant never;
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny;
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into. Hey nonny, nonny.

Sing no more ditties, sing no mo,
Or dumps so dull and heavy;
The fraud of men was ever so,
Since summer first was leavy.
Then sigh not so,
But let them go,
And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
Into. Hey, nonny, nonny.
                                    - W. S., of course
