Me, my mantra and Shakespeare
Friday night, I was at Shakespeare in the Park seeing Measure for Measure, a play that I've neither read nor seen before and I have to be honest, it was so hot and muggy that I wasn't all that interested. It was well acted and interestingly staged, but I was just so tired of being outside in the heat...until Act V Scene i when Isabella says "Truth is truth" to one of the characters. I have to admit, I had the church giggles then. It was wonderful.
I don't claim to be particularly brilliant, unique or ahead of my time, but I love a moment when an idea that I had at some point is had by someone else who is considered all of those things. It makes me feel validated in a strange way. I know that's weird.
So Shakespeare said it before I did, but that's alright. Truth is truth.
