Here’s a question that’s on my mind lately, now that I’ve got a new office and all kinds of new people to meet. How do you decorate your life with Shakespeare? What I mean is, if somebody meets you for the first time, or comes into your space, what about you says Shakespeare?
I don’t have much, surprisingly. Downstairs I’ve got some nice framed One Page posters. Upstairs on a little wall shelf I’ve got a small bust of Shakespeare. People who snoop around a bit will be sure to find my collection of action figures, wind-up toys and finger puppets. And then there’s the books. I’ve deliberately limited myself to one shelf on the bookcase upstairs, so I pick carefully and showcase only my favorite editions.
I christened my new office with one of my action figures, but then bought myself a present to really set the tone properly. Now I want to decorate my company computer, so a couple of these are already on the way from Amazon.
…you know, when I list it like that I suppose I do have more than a little. I was going to say, “That’s all in my home/work, I don’t carry stuff around with me.” But then there’s the Shakespeare air freshener in my car. 🙂
How about you? How can strangers tell you’re a Shakespeare geek as soon as they see you?
