Whoever parked the yellow car in front of this mural has an impeccable sense of composition. The mural, by Jordan Tarrant, is titled “99 Words and Phrases Coined by Shakespeare;” created I’m sure in honor of the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. I can’t imagine anything original I say today being common vernacular lasting 400 years. I wonder if old Bill had any idea his words would.

  1. I love this! And completely agree about the yellow car! šŸ™‚ My only request is that the photo were larger so I could read all 99 of those phrases! šŸ™‚

    BTW, we in Missoula were honored to host the First Folio of Shakespeare’s plays from the Folger Library for a few weeks at the university. Amazing to be that close to history.

    Which I was in another form over the weekend when a friend took me on a hike to see a 425 year old Ponderosa pine. šŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Kathy. It’s odd to think about trees sprouting in this country at the time of Shakespeare in England. Even more odd to consider the difference in cultures between England and western North America at that time.
