Rapt

 

An audience member at Fairest Creatures, an annual event in which members of the public read all 154 of Shakespeare's sonnets. I had the honor of reading number 85. The woman in the picture (who also read one) is following along in her book.

What a wonderful event and what a delightful image!

Sonnet LXXXV

My tongue-tied Muse in manners holds her still,
While comments of your praise richly compiled,
Reserve thy character with golden quill,
And precious phrase by all the Muses filed.

I think good thoughts, whilst others write good words,
And like unlettered clerk still cry 'Amen'
To every hymn that able spirit affords,
In polished form of well-refined pen.

Hearing you praised, I say ''tis so, 'tis true,'
And to the most of praise add something more;
But that is in my thought, whose love to you,

Though words come hindmost, holds his rank before.
Then others, for the breath of words respect,
Me for my dumb thoughts, speaking in effect.
Larry Bliss: It has great appeal for me since I am a writer...
This is a terrific picture Larry
Larry Bliss: I had never tried shooting in such low light before.
You got an excellent shot from it.
Larry Bliss: I got lucky...
Very nice!
