Week Seven: Most Welcome, Bondage
Happy Sunday! Welcome to our weekly celebration of coffee, food, Shakespeare and song. Add your own pot-luck dish by recording and sharing a favorite piece of Shakespeare or Sunday song … and we’ll pair it with a brunchy dish and cup of Joe.
A cup of coffee every morning is a culture in many places. Of course, it is easy to fall in love with delicious, sweet-smelling coffee, especially when it is served hot. If you choose your coffee carefully, you will indeed have reasons to make French vanilla cappuccino your favorite.
However, if you know little about this coffee drink – no problem. Relax as we introduce you to this lovely drink. If you are already a fan, also join us as we will be discussing the French vanilla cappuccino recipe and tips to maximize its benefits …
Cymbeline - Act V - Scene IV
Most welcome, bondage! for thou art away,
I think, to liberty: yet am I better
Than one that's sick o' the gout; since he had rather
Groan so in perpetuity than be cured
By the sure physician, death, who is the key
To unbar these locks. My conscience, thou art fetter'd
More than my shanks and wrists: you good gods, give me
The penitent instrument to pick that bolt,
Then, free for ever! Is't enough I am sorry?
So children temporal fathers do appease;
Gods are more full of mercy. Must I repent?
I cannot do it better than in gyves,
Desired more than constrain'd: to satisfy,
If of my freedom 'tis the main part, take
No stricter render of me than my all.
I know you are more clement than vile men,
Who of their broken debtors take a third,
A sixth, a tenth, letting them thrive again
On their abatement: that's not my desire:
For Imogen's dear life take mine; and though
'Tis not so dear, yet 'tis a life; you coin'd it:
'Tween man and man they weigh not every stamp;
Though light, take pieces for the figure's sake:
You rather mine, being yours: and so, great powers,
If you will take this audit, take this life,
And cancel these cold bonds. O Imogen!
I'll speak to thee in silence.
