Word

My friends and I had a lovely day in NYC today.  We made it in to Rockefeller Center by noon (ok Gabs, 12:45) and spent the rest of the day wandering, window shopping, seeing a great movie (though I really couldn’t believe I spent $12.50 on it, there goes the Christmas money), and, of course, eating.  As we were meandering back to Grand Central we naturally had to duck into the fabulous Barnes and Noble where I purchased my very own copy of the Complete Works of William Shakespeare. That’s right.  Every word the man ever penned is now sitting on my bookshelf next to the Complete Jane Austen and Sherlock Holmes.

When I got home and placed the legacy of the greatest writer in the history of the English Language between two other great writers of the English language, I got to thinking.  Between the three of them, they take up about a foot of space on my top bookshelf, single spaced.  That’s a TON of words.  Billions of words, millions of sentences, thousands of paragraphs.  And all of them wrote at least over a hundred years ago and people still clamor to buy and collect their works. Talk about legacy.  It’s awe-inspiring.  It almost physically moves my hand to my pen …

On that note, Thomas’s daring rescue of his damsel in distress from the clutches of an evil villain is long overdue.
