Our revels now are ended. These our actors,
As I foretold you, were all spirits, and
Are melted into air, into thin air:
And like the baseless fabric of this vision,
The cloud-capp’d tow’rs, the gorgeous palaces,
The solemn temples, the great globe itself,
Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve,
And, like this insubstantial pageant faded,
Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff
As dreams are made on; and our little life
Is rounded with a sleep.
And tomorrow we all return to the real world!
A little more tired, and happy to be back in blue jeans.
“Such stuff as dreams are made on” Ah, Prospero (I can’t help but hear John Gielgud’s voice when I read that), The Tempest. Sublime.
(Gah! I just had the horrible thought of a Hollywood version with Bradley Cooper in the lead with a CGI Caliban in 3D!)
Mr. K! You are so silly…
Ms. V I hope that you had a lovely evening. And thank you for the Prospero, one of my favorite excerpts from all of Shakespeare…
He had a way with words, that guy!
With all the beauty and depth of digital… Strike that, must think instead of the be voice of Gielgud… Much better!
My grandpa used to quote Shakespeare, I think those might have been his favorite lines…
I am not surprised that they were or may have been.
He used to chide my mom and her siblings to shut off that *radio* and stop rotting their minds, and then he would act out scenes from Shakespeare, taking all the parts himself, naturally 😉 .
Delightful. And, oh, the mind-rotting induced by radio!
We have to start an historic #mindrotting meme. #getoffthatpapyrus — 😉 .
