Shakespearean Imagination

God save you, neighbours!

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

I've been fighting with my internet connection all day, as we've had severe thunderstorms and downpours alternating with bright, gorgeous sunshine. Luckily, I'm able to post now while it's still Wednesday local time, LOL! Looking at the forecast over the next couple of days, it looks like the sun is going to win out, and I intend to bask in its:

radiance : ra•di•ance / ˈrādēəns/ (noun) :

-light or heat as emitted or reflected by something.
-great joy or love, apparent in someone’s expression or bearing.

Synonyms brilliance – luster – lustre

First seen in Shakespeare's All’s Well That Ends Well (written 1602 - 1603). The full text of the play may be found here.
