My date with Shakespeare

Posted on

My love affair with William Shakespeare began when I was in high school. I can’t recall the exact year, but I think it was my senior year. My English teacher, Ms. Linda Leslie introduced me to Shakespeare when she selected “Othello” for our class. I remember working on a group project with a few of my classmates. The best part of that project was when we were asked to choose a scene from the play and make a presentation about that scene.
I can’t remember what scene we chose, but I do remember that we did a story board for the scene and then made a short film based on that scene. I didn’t know it then, but that entire process led me to appreciate the movie making process.
Fast forward to college, I had the option of taking music, art appreciation or theatre. I took music and theatre and I will forever be grateful for those classes. I had a great time in my music class, but that will never compare to how alive I felt when I was in my theatre class. I love digging deep into the characters in Shakespeare’s plays. I told myself years ago that I will collect my favorite Shakespeare plays and re-read them and this is the year. I picked up “Othello” and “Hamlet” last week.
I spent an hour reading “Othello” yesterday and it felt great getting lost in Shakespeare’s world. It wasn’t a typical “me date”, but it was still a wonderful way to spend an hour by myself. I could have kept on reading for another hour, but I had way too much work to do. I am looking forward to another date with Shakespeare soon, hopefully I will be able to block out another hour tomorrow afternoon. I better get going…it is way past my bed time and I have to be up early for church.

Thank you for stopping by 🙂
