Act 3, Scene 2
spoken by Lady Macbeth
Hand-lettered on chipboard when I was between 16-18 years old, this was within sight of my desk for lots of years. Maybe as much as a decade. I think it reminded me to love my work. I think it said to me, "If you're going to go down, go down in the flames of your own fire. Don't go over to the other side just to survive."
I found it the other day in the two-drawer file cabinet in my closet in a file labeled "Food For Thought."
Maybe it's time to hang it over my desk again.
