a fool in the forest


  • A fool, a fool! I met a fool i' the
    A motley fool; a miserable world!
    As I do live by food, I met a fool
    Who laid him down and bask'd him
        in the sun,
    And rail'd on Lady Fortune in good
    In good set terms and yet a motley

    As You Like It,
    Act II, Scene 7

    L'homme y passe à travers des
        forêts de symboles
    Qui l'observent avec des regards

    Wow. Fantastic Job! That has to be the most comprehensive Carnival appendix I have ever seen. Is an appendix eligible for Blawg Review of the Year?


    Three cheers for Tiepolo's punchinello drawings! The best drawing is the one that shows them cooking gnocchi. Yum!
