Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.
–William Shakespeare, As You Like It, Act II, scene i, line 12. (1599).
Life being what it is, it seems that the vicissitudes have been more vicissitudinous than usual over the last few months. I have let even my regular posts–music on Fridays and quotes on Sundays–fall by the wayside, let alone original posts of which I have many drafts.
Among the various things I’m going to try harder on in this new year (I refuse to say “resolutions” in this context, not wishing to jinx myself), blogging will be one. As of this weekend, I’m starting back to the regular Friday and Sunday posts; and in the very near future, I hope to complete some of the many drafts I have and get them up.
Wish me luck!
