Life-isms

{End of September}

Reading:

Shakespeare: The World as Stage by Bill Bryson. After reading Station Eleven, I was in the mood for something Shakespeare-related (Shakespeare plays make several cameos in that book), so I grabbed this one from the library. It sounds like it should be dry, but it’s Bill Bryson. He makes things pretty entertaining. In reality, it was an entire book about how little we know about Shakespeare, which sounds terrible. But it was actually super interesting. For example, just about anyone could recognize a portrayal of Shakespeare, but nobody actually knows what he looked like. The main paintings our mental image of him is based on are either poorly drawn or possibly not even of him. Crazy. 

Watching:

Protect Runway season 15. It’s back! This is the only show I follow fairly closely. That being said, I’m already behind.

Listening to:

What’s the deal with Stradivarius violins? by Stuff You Should Know. This was fascinating to me. But I also play the violin, so it figures.
