    I OF THE BE OLDER 

    Life…is a tale/Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,/Signifying nothing.
    –William Shakespeare, Macbeth

    If you think
    I take life way
    Too seriously then

    You are

    Either a
    Night and a day
    Younger than I am or

    I do.

      It’s every man’s privilege to take life seriously. But to take Black Friday seriously–that’s a woman’s job.

      Ricardo, I don’t know if ladysighs is saying “hmmm” to my post or your comment, but either way, I thank you both.

      Muse I never thought of Macbeth as a Manic Depressive before. But maybe instead of thinking of Lady Macbeth Night and Day and things under the hide of me, he should have sung ‘What I did for Love’.

      ….or maybe IT’S A MAD, MAD, MAD, MAD WORLD (from the film of the same name).

      Flattery will get you nowhere, lexborgia –sorry, no refunds.
      Just kidding — flattery is greatly appreciated, even when not deserved (provided I get to be the judge of that). Give that gal a refund immediately!

      Hamlet is not manic depressive in medical terms of today. He would be Bi- Polar. very. very moody or very, very hyper active, his mind and actions = racing up and down. Like a roller coaster. “Gypsies” are called the Rom, members of a community. Night and Day is my way of living. Nap 3 hours; active 3 hours. Or or 12 hours of rest/ sleep. Then 12 hours of activity It is very effcient compared to our 24 hours of stress on body and mind. Muse, I am either younger or older than you. I consider myself a student of your classic life. I think that makes me younger.

      Yesterday, I suggested a song to Don, so here’s an appropriate one for you, Michaeline, that could be your theme song:

      Hooray ! mistermuse and Don, thank you both so very much. I love listening to Frank Sinatra. I have been listening to him since I was a girl. Watching him and all his cronies on my Dad’s black and white television was fascinating. I saw most of the shows and then his past performances at the Sands Hotel in Las Vegas. I went thru’ all of his songs listed. Felt like I was in Vegas again. That did make me feel so young. ;- )

    A TALE FULL OF SOUND AND HURRY 

    SOUND THINKING

    Rhyme is passe and trite —
    I never choose it….
    Except for when I write
    Poems that use it.

    BEMUSED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED

    Time doth pass in flight
    So fast, I think I’ll lose it….
    Except for when I write,
    And, lost in thought, bemuse it.

      In anticipation of someone pointing out that the unabridged sentence of my title from Shakespeare’s Macbeth is “It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.”: mistermuse denies that he’s an idiot (he’s just somewhat unbalanced).

      I had a really funny comment but then… I lost my thought but what of it. I guess it went cold. I agree. Perhaps you should laugh. But the laughs on me. I guess Bewitched Bothered and Bewildered am I.

      I appreciate your Hart-felt comment, Don (for the benefit of the musically Hart-less, Don’s comment borrowed lyrics from BEWITCHED, BOTHERED AND BEWILDERED, one of Lorenz Hart’s hit songs in PAL JOEY (1940).

      Mick Jagger once sang “Time is on my side.” Wonder if he still thinks that way?

      Mick also sang “Time Waits For No One”:

      But I prefer this one (same title, different song, written 30 years or so earlier):
