From Shakespeare’s “As You Like It”
This truism struck me as totally apt, yesterday: oh, I’ve thought this many times before, but the discoveries I unearthed recently have made me remember this quote. It is especially true when you look around and see the faces of friends and family looking back at you. Who are you all?
Why do we forget?
At the present, I am trying to match Mary Todd Lincoln to a modern version of her energy. This is proving harder that I expected. Her ‘craziness’, her lunacy, her manic-depression is so much more prevalent today than it was in the mid-19th century. One of a number of extended family members could qualify for the role, but narrowing down the choice is proving quite difficult.
And, in case you’re asking, I have the birth details of most everyone who has become important in my life. So, that’s a lot of people to choose from.
I guess, just like it always happens, I’ll have to wait until I’m actually shown who the person is.
