Awesome! It was so cool how you seemed to merge poetry and prose. The altered positioning of the words visually added to the atmosphere you were creating. Very inspirational and creative. Running may not always be possible, sometimes you may stumble and it is fine to slow it down a bit while you catch your breath. Moving forward is moving forward. Always remember the hare and the tortoise 🙂
I agree this painting is a wonderful blending of images and ideas that allows the viewer to use their imagination to add a to the already complex story taking place. You did an excellent job of describing the subject and meaning of the picture, but I would have enjoyed reading where your imagination took you. I’m sure it would be very different from mine and that can be a lot of fun.
Well done!. It is always tricky to try and convey your message and keep the rhythm and rhyme going. I think you were successful here. I often wonder whether we should explain a word we’re not sure our reader may understand. I choose not to and let them chase it up if they really care. Your option makes it easier though.
I couldn’t agree more! The messages run deep with these plays. It’s like a treasure hunt; the more you look, the more you find. I think most of us only have a surface knowledge of Shakespeare’s plays and are now experiencing the joy of really diving in and having a much deeper look and connection to the text. You seem to be enjoying the ride.
It really was an exiting production! Such a kinetic experience. Listening to the director and Actor talk I heard the set described as a “jungle gym” by two of the performers.They really played with the scaffold and this gave me a greater sense of their characters youth and vibrancy. Although I found it difficult to remove my Occupational Health and Safety hat and not worry about accidents and compensation claims 🙂
“Matrix of magic”, I love it! Shakespeare weaves such a rich tapestry, that one finds something new every time they read or watch a play. It is a fantastic adventure trying to uncover and decipher the multitude of meanings and messages. I am definitely getting a lot more than I bargained for with unit.
Yes, it is nice to know that Shakespeare’s writing is not completely unattainable, but it sure feels like it sometimes! I am hoping that Michael will help us find at least some of the keys to unlock the mysteries in these multiple layered plays. There is so much to be found in Shakespeare’s writing. It truly is an adventure!
