This weekend I plan on taking a closer look at all the onlin epoetry sites I have been told of and will also add more to the blogroll. I then plan to post links to items I find interesting - which is what this blog is about: sharing with others things I find interesting that have to do, in the widest sense, with the world of books.
For instance, I learn from the Times of London that tomorrow is Sir Ian McKellen's birthday. I first encountered McKellen when PBS broadcast his one-man show Acting in Shakespeare. That must have been in the 1970s. How long ago that seems (especially since I can remember the night quite vividly - I rarely revisit the past, but I can conjure it very well when I choose to). I have been a fan ever since. The Times also notes that Sir Ian has a website and that he blogs. I just visited the Ian McKellen Official Home Page and see that there are video clips, one of which is taken from Acting in Shakespeare. I also see that in March of next year he will be playing King Lear at Stratford. I think I will at least look into the possibility of attending that.
But for now, to bed.
