Happy 450th birthday (maybe), William Shakespeare! I love you as much today as I did when my mother bestowed on me her copy of your complete works when I was heading off to college…and I hope I get to see some of the Globe to Globe tour (although truth be told, I wish it featured the Scottish play).
In honor of the Bard, there’s a lot of actual reading (and listening) in this week’s links. I hope this encourages you to spend some time relaxing this weekend. Whatever you’re doing, enjoy!
