You certainly bring a unique perspective!

And if this century is one of synthesis following centuries of specialism, you're certainly playing your part

I was particularly grateful to learn of the parentage of the Bard's handkerchief ie his choosing chance not theft

I have long been intrigued and troubled by such "sliding door" moments whereby ostensibly the most trivial of events can bring about life's greatest joys or tragedies - eg marriage, children, death

One such in my case, was a friend's willingness to loan me a book led directly to my meeting my future wife and the creation of two talented children

Go figure :-)

Btw, I assume you've digested Joyce's view of tragedy in Portrait of the Artist?

Whatever, all strength to your quill!
