Shakespeare's Birthday or Hello April

TALKING TO MYSELF - 22 April, 2016  

  ". . . proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim, Hath put a spirit of youth in everything . . . " 

-- from Sonnet XCVIII by William Shakespeare


Tomorrow, April 23, is William Shakespeare's birthday. Or it could be today, April 22, or the day after tomorrow, April 24. All we know for sure is that he was baptized on April 26, 1564. In my opinion, he wrote about everything there is to be said about the human condition, and there is little need for the rest of us to keep trying to re-phrase it. Happy Birthday, Mr. Shakespeare - I am glad you were born.
