Seasons Greetings 2013
December 25, 2013Posted by on
My best wishes to you all, especially today. For a while it seemed that we were to have a Shakespearean winter here in Somerset. We have been spared the icicles hanging from the wall so far, however I was reminded of Winter by William Shakespeare – a closing song in Love’s Labour’s Lost.
A Shakespearean play about disguised personae and misdirected missives should lead us all to the words of Costard:
“O, they have lived long on the alms-basket of words.
I marvel thy master hath not eaten thee for a word;
for thou art not so long by the head as
honorificabilitudinitatibus: thou art easier
swallowed than a flap-dragon.”
For those prefer a briefer take on Shakespeare, here are his compleat works in one minute twenty. Do enjoy the day – wherever you are.
