I know I've been MIA lately. I didn't think it would be possible, but I think I've actually run out of things to say! So, alas, the blog has remained empty.
This last weekend I went to Cedar City to the High School Shakespeare Competition. I workshop kids for Shakespeare with Davis High School, and I love every second of it. This year there was a lot of playing, a few tears, more laughs than I can count, and many a sleepless night.
I also ended up with strep throat which means that I skipped out on my long run... I'm still trying not to beat myself up about it.
Back to Shakespeare.... His words are universal. The reason the Bard has been so popular is because of the timelessness and utter relatability of his characters and the situations they are in.
So maybe we don't murder our enemies sons and bake them into pies like in Titus Andronicus.
And maybe we don't sell our souls to the Devil in order to obtain a higher position like MacBeth.
However, we can apply the lines to our lives with ease. Example?
MacBeth, Act I Scene VII:
|Macb. If we should fail?|
|Lady M. We fail!|
|But screw your courage to the sticking-place,|
|And we’ll not fail.|
Whether you have a bad workout, a bad race,or you are getting ready to run your first race or your 100th- remember COURAGE.
