One of my absolute favourite things in the world is Shakespeare-in-the-Park. As a part of Repercussion Theatre, a non-profit organization that tours Canada and the U.S., Shakespeare-in-the-Park is a troupe of actors who perform (you guessed it) exclusively Shakespearean plays in outdoor public spaces. It’s because of them that I love the Bard as much as … More Shakespeare in the Park: Julius Caesar
Hello all you lovely folks! I’ve missed you!! It seems I took an impromptu month-long vacation from blogging.

Reading books. Writing … More A Trip to Boseong

When New Year’s comes around, most folks gather around the TV with loved ones to watch the perennial gibber jabber of celebrities … More New Year, New Post, Old Directions?
