Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

It's Wednesday again, which means another installment of Shakespearean Imagination!

I have no witty anecdote for today, other than to say that today’s word embodies what I fervently hope my life will soon become! With that, I give you today’s word:

tranquil : tran•quil / ˈtraNGkwəl / (adjective) :

- Free from disturbance; calm.

Synonyms: calm - quiet - still - placid - peaceful - serene
First seen in Shakespeare's Othello (written 1604 - 1605). The full text of the play may be found here.
