Today we post a Sonnet by Shakespeare:
How can I then return in happy plight,
That am debarr'd the benefit of rest?
When day's oppression is not eased by night,
But day by night, and night by day, oppress'd?
And each, though enemies to either's reign,
Do in consent shake hands to torture me;
The one by toil, the other to complain
How far I toil, still farther off from thee.
I tell the day, to please them thou art bright
And dost him grace when clouds do blot the heaven:
So flatter I the swart-complexion'd night,
When sparkling stars twire not thou gild'st the even.
But day doth daily draw my sorrows longer
And night doth nightly make grief's strength
Was Shakespeare going on holidays when he mentions the 'benefit of rest'?
This is clearly a Sonnet that make us feel more like going on holidays, in order to obtain new strenght to continue writing and dreaming. Resting as part of the creative process :-) I think that all of us believe this is a good idea. No sorrows and no night, only light.
See you soon.
