Bullet Journal – February 2019
We are continuing with Shakespeare theme. This month, we are inspired by The Tempest.
In the words of the deposed Duke of Milan and a magician, Prospero – “We are such stuff as dreams are made of.”
A little reminder of our reality and how the lives we built can change in just a moment. The lives that we dreamed of, we accomplished thru hard work.
The Tempest takes place in a remote island where Prosepero and his daughter Miranda have been live for 12 years. Prospero is a practicing magician who managed to take his book of magic with him when they were banished. The island has spirits who were cursed in tree trunks.
Alonso, King of Naples, and his son Ferdinand were traveling when their ship got caught in the storm and the men were stranded on the same island. Ferdinand meets Miranda and they fall in love. Prospero returned to Milan to reclaim his place as Duke and in the end is the celebration. A haunting story with a happy ending.
With the ship coming out from the moon is like coming out of your dream into reality where the waves hit you unexpectedly. Keeping with the Tempest theme, the tree is for the spirit imprisoned in the tree trunks. And the stars completes that magical atmosphere.
