1. I'm glad you two are back on the net, my dear Aristus!

What does Will think about wi-fi?

It must blow his mind!

3. Well, I told him: "Now people everywhere can read your plays!"

He replied: "They are not to be read, mate. They were meant to be heard! What care I if someone reads a play? They must see it performed by a company of players!"

5. So. is Will one of us, a Democrat?

Please say yes. I couldn't stand it if he were a bagger.

6. He's tough to pin down.

He's one of us, but he had a hard time saying so, since he has to publicly uphold the essential conservatism of monarchy.

But he supports loving who you choose to love, regardless of familial or societal strictures(Romeo And Juliet), the overthrow of bad leaders (Henry VI, Macbeth), transvestitism (more plays than I can count), and the redemptive power of love, reason, and forgiveness (King Lear).

11. I can.

(Although Will himself is scratching his head over it.)

The very act of observation can affect that which is being observed, leading to uncertainty as to the conclusions derived from the observation itself.

... My career as a chemistry major back in 1983 was short-lived. Didn't get it and couldn't hack it.

The quill has to be strong enough for the ages...

The sword? Only for a half hour or so...

17. "The Conquest Of Paradise" by Vangelis.

Amazing piece of music.



Will is getting into it. "I see it, mate! It is Prospero come to ruin Calaban's home and life!"
