Never odd or even. Not bad for a palindrome eh diary? It's not original but I like it. I had a thought today that suprised me. I wonder if I will ever play Lear. I could handle the emotional truth, it's the meter I'm worried about. Humanity is tough to celebrate, especially when trippingly on the tongue, a la heartbeat, is a quiet necessity. To speak the truth, with Shakes, requires the love. There's a bit of iambic pen for you Diary. I'll scribble out some sonnets for practice. Afterall, nothing will come of nothing. If you think about it, Shakespeare is like birds of paradise, both are embraced and avoid reduction to stricture. Constance wants to see the new Billy Joel musical next week. I'd rather be on a camping trip. Stay tuned.
