All the world’s a Stage

After reading Leanne Cole’s inspiring post on playing with light and dark, I created these two images. Shakespeare’s words from “As You Like It” come to mind:

Clown 1

All the world’s a stage,  And all the men and women merely players:  They have their exits and their entrances;  And one man in his time plays many parts,  –  It’s really worth reading the whole piece. I’ve always found these words deeply meaningful.



About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

  2. All the world is a stage…unfortunately, many actors could play quite better !


  3. I love that speech too. It becomes even more interesting as one moves through the stages! 🙂
