I have always loved this Quote by Shakespeare and when I found the Picture for the Challenge I thought it would be awesome to use and see everyone’s different interpretations and “My Oh My” what a Challenge it has turned out to be ~ Take a Bow entrants!!!
The submissions have been absolutely incredible and my Stats have been the best ever…. I thank everyone who has taken part… special thanks going to Angel Poet, Shawn D. Standfast & Magenta Nero who have assisted and provided me with feedback when time was short 🙏 To the Poets, Story-tellers, Readers and Supporters…. from the bottom of my heart ❤️ “Thank-you” SO much for taking the time to share in this project with me…. it has truly inspired and filled me with immense joy… each piece is a treasured gift!!!
The past year in my Life has been a kind of an awakening of sorts… I had surgery that has changed my Life, took a huge Trip around the World for 3 months – where I got to meet some of you & reconnected with some old friends I hadn’t seen in over 20 years, Plus I lost some friends this past year too… the passing of Marcus occurred in the middle of my trip as well… so when I got home I felt very flat and decided that I’d run this Challenge and as always it lifts and spurs me on… so thank-you doesn’t really say what it has meant to me…
I celebrate my Birthday tomorrow… so each piece has been like an opening of a precious present to me and a big Ole’ Party for the past 3 weeks that I have shared with you all!
So much love, hugs and light to each of you :-)) xoxox
And now for my Interpretation:
Life is but a Stage
A pantomime of sorts
A blank canvas to be filled by each and everyone of us
From the moment we are born till the end of our finale.
Uniquely, we each view life differently
Our perceptions and experiences
Are diverse and wide
Which form a multitude of never-ending tales.
Lifting those in need
Some we relate to most gratefully
Finding a peace that we’re not alone upon our journey!
As the show is about to commence
The curtain rises
Like the lifting of a Gossamer Veil on a Virginal Bride
Filling us with anticipation of endless thoughts
That challenges our minds for the magic that we crave.
We are ready to be transcribed
Into a journey of different realms
Through portals of interpretation
Bestowed through the individual story-teller
With imagination as our guide.
The emotions once hidden in twilight
Are now lighted centre of stage
Where we readily inhale their words
To absorb the unique creations
Leading us for but a moment into their world of vision.
We sit absorbed in fascination
Till the very end
With the finale upon us now
The curtains fall
And we’re left in glorious wonder
Till a new show shall begin!
