Mostly It Is Loss/Our Revels Are Now Ended

For my friend Glen, who died yesterday.

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote

Arthur Schopenhauer Quote

“Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp’d towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep.”-William Shakespeare, The Tempest

    • Yes, you are quite correct (and I have fixed it). It is the result of what is known as tying one on because you just found out that a dear friend was hit and killed by a semi truck. 😦 I am actually an ex-Shakespearean actor. Unfortunately, grief is not a good proofreader.


      • Oh my, that is unbelievably tragic. No, grief is an appalling proofreader. I lost three friends when I was running my theatre website and only now, as I transfer the articles to the new blog, am I seeing some of my howlers. Please take care.


      • Indeed! His poor family…

        It is still very shocking. Losing one friend is horrible, but three is unimaginable! Thanks again for your kind words, and for pointing out my goof. I probably wouldn’t have noticed it for awhile.


  1. oh! OH!


    not everybody makes it.

    we are so sad to hear about your loss.


    sending much interweb friendship and caring thoughts.
