How could I resist a meme from the Bard?!  
William Shakespeare

BoyWonderMark, BoyWonderMark! Parting is such sweet sorrow
That I shall say BoyWonderMark till it be morrow.

Which work of Shakespeare was the original quote from?

Romeo and Juliet
Did you know Juliet was actually
a guy who was Will Shakespeare's
cover for his real feelings?

Cool! I didn't know about Juliet, but I seem to recall that a great number of his love sonnets were written to a handsome youth he was smitten with!

What light thru yonder window breaks? It is Boywondermark.

That's why the sun shines first in Baltimore - because BoyWonderMark is there.

It is believed that the young man Will was gaga over was Henry Wriothesley 3rd Earl of Southampton,
a young rich lad who was very pretty
(check out Wikipedia for his portrait
at age 21) and probably gay. Wikipedia is very cautious about Will's relationship to Henry, but in
a wonderful book "Will in the World"
by Stephen Greenblatt, there's the
strong suggestion that Will was in
love with the handsome Earl, and he
describes their probable relationship in some detail.
Greenblatt writes: "Shakrespeare was
hardly a rigid Victorian moralist. His plays depict sexual appetite with
compassion or wry amusement." His
marriage was not a happy one, and he
was more often away from home than in
it. The last line on his tombstone
CURST BE HE YT MOVES MY BONES may have been a final fear that someone
in his wife's family would dig up his
bones and place them next to the
woman he could not stand.

Fantastic! Thank you so much for that! I love history and bits of trivia like that! I skipped over to wikipwedia and read the whole thing! I'll have to look for "Will in the World".

By the way, may I add you to my friends list?
guardian1 on November 13th, 2007 01:06 am (UTC)
You sure can add me to your friends'
list but our communication has to be
limited for reasons I can explain at another time). My LJ is for show only. I actually don't use it. I'm a very private person. I piggyback on the LJs of friends like ozgryph (Clay) which is how I came to read your LJ. I visited Clay and his bf Adam in Sydney a few years ago. But we can communicate thru e-mail (JDSAL0619@aol.com) or thru your LJ.
BTW I was born and raised in Baltimore and later lived in New York
and then Philadelphia where I now
live happily. What part of Baltimore
do you live in? I know the city well.

I will add you then! *grin* Please know that I'm not flirting or anything like that! I don't use my journal as a meet/meat market...so no worries on that front!
Clay seems to be such a sweetheart! Nice that you found me through him. I've been to Sydney myself...wonderful city...also did a camping through the Outback thing years ago!
I'm actually in a suburb of Baltimore...Catonsville...do you know it? What part of Baltimore did you grow up in?
