Following twelve weeks off the past roundup, it’s here if you’d like to read it, and to chime in with the time of year it’s time for the second one. We’ll be starting with the second Sunday in September.
I’ll be honest I wanted to be able to have a cake-pop Shakespeare Sunday! I tied it in with the Othello quote, there isn’t much about cake in Shakespeare’s work. Unsure if that surprised me or not.
It was a sad day at Pixie HQ. 13.1% of the German voting population seemed to have forgotten what had gone on in their country between the years of 1933-1989. I can only hope the possible redux coming hopefully next year, people will have studied up on their history. The image, and quote, had been selected to show my thoughts on the occasion.
The Shakespeare Sunday that was a day late. I honestly can’t remember why it was a day late. Probably a good thing.
I was going through some more contemplative things at the time, and this quote struck me right on point. There are times when I do have to remind myself of this message a few times. Finding a good image to go along with this was hard!
I keep coming back to this play. I think now it’s been ten years since studying it at A Level I appreciate it that bit more. That and the morals of the story seem to get more and more applicable to the modern day as we go along. Wonderful watch if you ever see it put on.
I get a bit philosophical, debating the true meaning of freedom in this day and age. I think Shakespeare himself was playing around with the concept in The Tempest. Many of the characters are free to do things, but under specific limitations- use of magic, physical ability, or the law depending on who, what and where.
This was posted in time for Halloween hence the good ol’ quote from the Witches!
I’d found this image on Canva some times ago and really loved it. It was one of those that I had picked out knowing that I’d find a great quote to go with it. With a quote from The Merry Wives of Windsor I think it looks great. The blog that went with it reflected the still ongoing issues of men in high statuses abusing their power.
I’d intended the next post to go out this week, but when I realised that the fundraising live stream I used to work with was starting then I did a quick change. A quick happy one about the power of charity and good fortune. I can be happy and non-political sometimes!
Finally cracked out Sonnet 130. I would like to read this at my wedding, not going to lie. It sums up what true love, over lust, really is. That and I would like something Shakespeare in the day as well. Just letting you know, Belov’d!
I was talking about long distance relationships in my main blog, and saw this when I had used The Tempest earlier. It was apt and worked well. I liked to imagine that one day Belov’d and I would be one of those on the bridge, taking in the sunset and the city.
I like how applicable this quote is to life in general. Just small regular steps can get you to places if you keep it up. Whether it’s a hill that was just a few feet short of a mountain or learning something new. The image was again one I had earmarked from the Canva selection and really wanted to use.
And that’s it for the mean time. If you’d like to see all the Shakespeare Sundays, select it from the Categories search to the left- or click here. I hope you enjoy the days when the Bard stops by!
