"No, sure, my lord, my mother cried; but then there was a star danced, and under that was I born...." Beatrice
Every time I see Shakespeare, I am amazed at how funny and true his words are today. People truly do not change. We continue to cross ourselves up over nothing and bicker and complain about nothing to the point of breaking each other. Even when our natures are pure and true, we fall into the trap of exaggerating our problems and risk losing people we love over the superficially inflated molehills in our lives.
The new Much Ado About Nothing was a much needed 2 hour break from reality that left me still smiling this morning. What a wonderful testament to the power of art that the words of a man 400 years dead continue to change hearts, minds, and moods every day, including mine.
