It looks like my last post was February 21st. Time flies. I can’t even remember if I was having fun.
Anyway, I have been having some issues with this blog. By issues, I mean I have been reconsidering whether or not I should be writing this blog. It sort of feels like I am flaunting my good deeds, but at the same time, I don’t really feel that I have made myself look all that great. So, maybe no harm, no foul.
That said, being Lent, I have decided to take a break from the Blog. Any acts of kindness or love that I do will strictly be between God and myself. After Easter, I hope to know whether to press on with the Blog.
To blog, or not to blog; that is the question:
I was going to try and be all literary, and use the actual quote, but it is kind of depressing. Hamlet is contemplating suicide here. I guess I am contemplating blog suicide, but it just doesn’t seem appropriate. Heeeeerrrrre’s Shakespeare:
“To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep-
The good news is that Hamlet comes to trust in God’s providence. And, he does not commit suicide. The bad news, he dies at the end anyway. There’s a sword fight, he’s wounded. There’s poison, his mother dies. He stabs his uncle with a poison-tipped sword. He then makes his uncle drink the poison too. (I think.) When Shakespeare writes a tragedy, he writes a bloody tragedy. Oh, I have just gone and ruined the ending. So sorry.
Maybe this could turn into a new blog? Ellie’s Shakespeare Interpretations for Smart-Asses.
I like it.
Talk to you after lent.
