#WitchWeek2021 Day 2

Over at Calmgrove, you’ll find our discussion of The Tempest. Ola, Jean, Chris and I had a great time talking about stormy double-dealing, back-stabbing, machinations, and just plain old devilry happening in what’s considered Shakespeare’s final solo project. A suitable Read-Along for Treason and Plot, no?

While I have your attention, let’s see how things have progressed for Mr. Fawkes. Two mores spaces have been filled in, but also — uh oh! — another wrong guess. Is the hangman looking altogether too eager? And what’s that woman doing next to the pile of wood?

Still not drawn to scale

What do you think of our man’s chances? Don’t forget to respond with your guess for today. And remember, you can repeat an earlier guess, if it wasn’t selected as either right or wrong.

As I sign off, I give you your daily musical interlude, this one (keeping with the tempestuous theme) is Benjamin Britten’s “Sea Interludes/4/Storm”, from the opera Peter Grimes, conducted by Leonard Bernstein.

PS: NaNoWriMo starts today: 30 days of literary abandon! I’m working on a little something but will say no more here, for fear of jinxing my chances of finishing on time. It’s going to be a busy month.
