Subject:        St. George's Day

Thinking fondly of the gentle, brilliant man without whom none of us
would be here. Born (or perhaps baptized) on this day, died on this day.

        Sonnet LXXXI

       Or I shall live your epitaph to make,
       Or you survive when I in earth am rotten;
       From hence your memory death cannot take,
       Although in me each part will be forgotten.
       Your name from hence immortal life shall have,
       Though I, once gone, to all the world must die:
       The earth can yield me but a common grave,
       When you entombed in men's eyes shall lie.
       Your monument shall be my gentle verse,
       Which eyes not yet created shall o'er-read,
       And tongues to be your being shall rehearse
       When all the breathers of this world are dead;
       You still shall live--such virtue hath my pen--
       Where breath most breathes, even in the mouths of men.

Heaven and earth.  Must I remember?  Today is Shakespeare's birthday.
As His vicar here on earth I send all SHAKSPERans His best wishes and
mine. Another thing to remember.  I am still seeking Associates to the
Shakespeare Data Bank.  Select  a scholarly, popular, or whatever theme,
topic, subject, angle, your pet project, etc, or write for one. I will
send instructions.    A computerized plaque will be entered at the head
of your contribution when we go on line.  Everyone will learn from
everyone else.  Knowledge is power.  Knowledge brings  wisdom.  There is
no sin but ignorance.  'tis not folly to be wise.   lou marder

[If you would rather celebrate S's birthday on May  3 (in the Gregorian
calendar), that is ok with me too.]   Rememberrrrrrrrrrr me....  and the
SDB.  Thanks.
