     My introduction to this should be titled, “Why I love The Guardian and would take it to a desert island.” I am a Shakespeare junkie: a former professor who spent two years at the Shakespeare Institute and who taught Shakespeare in many guises. This is the best essay I have read on Shakespeare in many a long year. Thanks to The Guardian for sharing it with us!

“Today everybody reads Shakespeare. But what books did he read? Jonathan Bate on the writers who shaped the world’s greatest playwright – and the three books the Bard would pick for Desert Island Discs…”

     We are endlessly creative in finding new ways to express the artist in us. Many of us photography as a means of showing the essence of the world around us. For some in the medical profession the x-ray machine offers a new way of seeing and understanding the beauties of nature.

     The very perceptive Claire Voon of Hyperallergic reports on the work of 1930s radiologist Dr. Dain L. Tasker, on exhibition at the Joseph Bellows Gallery in La Jolla until mid-February. Dr. Tasker was a pioneer in botanical art, using the x-ray machine to reveal the essential structure of plants. The images, in all the tones from white through endless grays to deepest black, are haunting in their poetic elusiveness.

     For this post i have twinned the anatomy of flowers with tidbits from Shakespeare, courtesy of the Folger Shakespeare Library.

“When we think of X-rays, we generally think of the human body’s skeletal structure, but in the 1930s, one osteopathist turned his attention to the anatomy of plants and used his X-ray machine…”

Potpourri Sunday: Shakespeare as a Life Coach – WSJ

Standard
Secret of Music and Healing: Connectedness

Secret of all Art and Healing: Connectedness

 

Shakespeare was the master of understanding connections, of bringing to bear all knowledge and experience in the creation of characters who speak to us as much today as they did to their original audiences–perhaps more. All over the US and in other countries summer productions of Shakespeare’s plays, often in an open air park setting and free or at small cost to people, are completing their summer seasons.

Dr. Perri Klass is an extraordinary physician and researcher who crosses many worlds in her work. This piece from the Wall Street Journal reveals the depth of her understanding and knowledge. Here is the woman, the daughter, the mother, turning to Shakespeare in coping with her personal grieving and loss. This is why we need more Shakespeare in the Park in communities small and large.

READ AND READ A SECOND TIME…WEEP…SHARE WITH OTHERS WHO NEED IT.
