I see my mind as a tapestry woven through with memories, dreams and thoughts.

Sunday Snippet


Photograph - Dr. David Sutton 'The Complete Guide to wild Flowers'


'I know a bank whereon the wild thyme blows,
Where ox-lips and the nodding violet grows;
Quite over-canopied with lush woodbine,
With sweet musk-roses and with eglantine:
There sleeps Titania some time of the night,
Lull'd in these flowers with dances and delight;
And there the snake throws her enamell'd skin,
Weed wide enough to wrap a fairy in.'

From 'A Midsummer Night's Dream' William Shakespeare

This not only does this piece envoke a beautiful, dreamlike picture in my mind, but also it reminds me of when I was at school. I played 'Puck' in a school performance of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'.

Great Snippet!
