. . . oft gang agley." Or so said Robert Burns, and I find him to be correct.

It occurred to me at bedtime last night that it was already several days into June, and I was supposed to be doing Brush Up Your Shakespeare posts, because I'd said so.

Only my health had other thoughts. I've been tapering off of prednisone, which on the one hand is a very good thing because of future health detriments, and on the other means my energy plummeted like whoa. And I am also about to switch medications for treating my RA, since the one I'm on hasn't completely contained things (meaning I have some swollen/warm joints along with aches & pains).

All of which is to say that I am sorry not to be doing daily Shakespeare posts so far, and may try to get some up as I'm able, but they may not be daily. As the old Yiddish proverb goes, "We plan, God laughs." (It means life doesn't work that way, of course, and not that God is especially cynical or in a hurry to thwart people's plans.)

In other news, I'm sitting down with myself and a cup of tea to have a planning session. Yes, I know what I just said, but I need a blueprint. And, apparently, to really write stuff down so I can stay on track (with myself).

And that reminds me . . . I want to get back to my reading of the classics. So which is your favorite Shakespeare work? I was thinking of re-reading Macbeth (read last in junior high) and then watching the recent movie version starring Michael Fassbender. I'm always curious to see how movie versions compare to the original text.
