"Have I gone mad?"— "I'm afraid so, your entirely bonkers—but I'll tell you a secret, all the best people are." (Lewis Caroll)
I devote multitudinous oceans of time to Shakespeare and obsolete archaic (or even, heaven help me--arcane) words, and like a composer, who upon the hour of believing it is this moment, and this moment alone that he shall conceive his Magnum Opus, and yet never does, I shall never cease.
"We are such stuff as Dreams are made on; and Our Little Life is rounded with a Sleep."
