Two major events are happening this weekend.

1.  William Shakespeare died 400 years ago today.

2.  Season Six of GAME OF THRONES debuts tomorrow night on HBO.

About the former:  Today Kyle Kallgren, of the BROWS HELD HIGH netcast, posted video feature what's happened to the Bard's legend since:



My favorite scene is when a Klingon recites the "To be or not to be soliloquoy.  When I first saw the video, I posted on the BROWS HELD HIGH facebook page "Yes, but has Shakespeare been translated in Dothraki?"  Greg Arsenault replied, "I've no doubt someone is working on it."  I then replied that there should be some sort of Rule, like Rule 34:  "If something exists, there is a porn of it.

My proposed rule would be:  If there is a language created by a TV series, like Klingon or Dothraki, Shakespeare will be tranlated into it."

"Two woods diverge in a yellow wood"--Robert Frost.

At least the "I" in "The Road Less Traveled" has a clear-cut choice in directions.  Travallers down the Road of Life often more than two choices, and the direction in which they need should go is not so clear-cut.  Thus, they don't know what their decisions should be.  I've encountered my share of lack of clear-cut choices down the Road of Life.  What church should I go to?  What candidate should I vote for in the next election?  Should I watch "Citizen Kane" or "Vertigo?"  Or should I read instead?  And what should I read?



Currently I "reading" a book, 1 PAGE AT A TIME by Adam J. Kurtz.  Each page features an exercise to do.  The page I did yesterday sported a crudely-drawn rectangle with the words FREE SPACE, crudely handwritten in it.  At the page's bottom, in teeny-tiny type, I saw this:  "You'll see these wide open spaces as you move along.  Sometimes there's no clear direction.  Take a deep breath and try to enjoy it."
 
That's a valuable life lesson.  Sometimes there are no clear-cut choices.  When that comes, one just needs to take a deep breath, dive in, and enjoy it.

Earlier this morning, while I was writing in my notebook, I realize that my "office," the table where I do most of my writing, websurfing, eating, and drinking, needed some straightening out.  So, soon after I'd finished writing, I worked on putting some of the stuff that had lain on the table and put it back where it belongs.

Sometimes the direction in which you should go is take care of the issue that most needs taken care of.
