  I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation prevent your discovery, and your secrecy to the King and queen: moult no feather. Why put anything in a circular form. I have of late, (but wherefore I know not) lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition; that this goodly frame the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory (it’s nice to be indoors when the world is falling apart outside) this most excellent canopy the air, look you, this brave o'er hanging firmament, this majestical roof, fretted with golden fire: why, it appeareth no other thing to me, than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors. What possibility. What a piece of work is man, How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, In form and moving how express and admirable, In action how like an Angel, In apprehension how like a god, The beauty of the world, The paragon of animals. And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? A black man doing ballet on a bicycle. A man whispering shhhh in my ear walking on the street. Man delights not me; no, nor Woman neither; though by your smiling you seem to say so   Live stream, leather, pond

I will tell you why; so shall my anticipation prevent your discovery, and your secrecy to the King and queen: moult no feather. Why put anything in a circular form. I have of late, (but wherefore I know not) lost all my mirth, forgone all custom of exercises; and indeed, it goes so heavily with my disposition; that this goodly frame the earth, seems to me a sterile promontory (it’s nice to be indoors when the world is falling apart outside) this most excellent canopy the air, look you, this brave o'er hanging firmament, this majestical roof, fretted with golden fire: why, it appeareth no other thing to me, than a foul and pestilent congregation of vapors. What possibility. What a piece of work is man, How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty, In form and moving how express and admirable, In action how like an Angel, In apprehension how like a god, The beauty of the world, The paragon of animals. And yet to me, what is this quintessence of dust? A black man doing ballet on a bicycle. A man whispering shhhh in my ear walking on the street. Man delights not me; no, nor Woman neither; though by your smiling you seem to say so

Nothing does not belong to you. It is like fishing not catching. Today was are three in number. When the landscape becomes another thing do we as we are reorganized around the new landscape. If I forget the words I’ll make them up: Black ships of foreign appearance at day break and the the heat and then, nothing more
