After a four day weekend, it's back to the salt mines today. But these beauties are waiting for me to come home to them!
Have a good week, everyone.
Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.
Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson (born April 27, 1945) only attended school until the age of 15, but was largely self-educated thereafter. He spent so much time reading at the Carnegie Library in Pittsburgh that they later awarded him an honorary degree.
The trailer for the upcoming August Wilson adaptation, "Fences," really got me. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2m6Jvp0bUw
I've been an admirer of Wilson's since the early '90s. I read several of his plays at that time. But not since.
Now I'm tempted to read the whole cycle - not in publication order, but in decade order that the plots move through the 20th century.
Might be a good way to spend Saturday afternoons through the end of the year.
