Love is Merely a Madness...

Dolls - Literary CharactersYour Name12 Comments

It has been a busy few weeks, mostly because my family was visiting from Nova Scotia, so there were six people (including two teenagers!) crammed into my two bedroom apartment.  It was a lovely visit, which included visits to the stunning Notre Dame Cathedral, walks along the canal and the new Star Trek movie; from the sublime to the ridiculous, as my grandmother used to say!  (But ridiculous is not necessarily bad and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie.)

On a less pleasant note, my computer crashed and now I'm stuck using my husband's ancient, 7-year-old beater of a laptop.  It's amazing and frightening how much using a slow computer detracts from one's quality of life, as everything  takes about 5 times longer.  So, this will be a short post, and hopefully I should have a more efficifient machine very soon.  Ros mask
Here is my most recent creation and a commission, the cross-dressing and mask-wearing Rosalind from As You Like It.  Now I'm all for love, so it's Rosalind here has some other thoughts to share:

Love is merely a madness, and, I tell
you, deserves as well a dark house and a whip
as madmen do; and the reason why they are
not so punish'd and cured is that the lunacy is
so ordinary that the whippers are in love too.

Happy Summer Lovin' to all you madmen...
