Summer Solace

I pray you, in your letters,
When you shall these unlucky deeds relate,
Speak of me as I am; nothing extenuate,
Nor set down aught in malice. Then must you speak
Of one that lov’d not wisely but too well.

Shakespeare, Othello

Deer with a Lean and Hungry Look

It is getting greener in my corner of Michigan and none too soon for this guy, who definitely needs to bulk up.  Like a certain Shakespeare character, he has a lean and hungry look.

The Bard’s Birthday: In Love with Night


Come, gentle night, come, loving, black-browed night,
Give me my Romeo.  And when he shall die,
Take him and cut him out in little stars,
And he will make the face of heaven so fine
That all the world will be in love with night
And pay no worship to the garish sun.

April 23 traditionally marks William Shakespeare’s birthday.  From Romeo and Juliet, one of my favorite passages.
