All the World’s a Stage…


It occurred to me, then, how nearly real life resembles the first rehearsal of a play.  We are all of us stumbling through it, doing our best to say the proper lines and make the proper moves, but not quite comfortable yet in the parts we’ve been given.  Still, like players who trust that–despite all evidence to the contrary–the whole mess will make sense eventually, we keep on going, hoping that somehow things will work out for the best.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    That is so true.  Life is like a first rehersal, but I’m grateful that we can take our cues from the One who knows the entire story.

  8. Hello Homefire,You made your site simple yet elegant. The music player and pictures are a nice touch. I see that you have a wide variety of interests and observations here! I’m sending an important message to people about Jehovah God’s plans for us that is in the Bible. 2 And God spake unto Moses, and said unto him, I am the LORD: 3 And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them. (Exodus 6:2-3) (KJV)

  9. hi.. I agree with the comment ‘Booksforme’ left on this post..  Blackwood is just echoing a great insight that Shakespeare laid down 400 years earlier.. but, it never gets old goin’ back to it, y’know.             peace.
