Blogging on a damp day today. Good to see the rain on Vancouver Island.
You may wonder why there is an image of Oscar Wilde on my Blog today. Well, first all, I love some of his quotes especially the one "Be Yourself. Everyone else is already taken." But in his day, it was a little different to "be himself".
Oscar Fingal O'Flahertie Wills Wilde (1854–1900) was a prolific writer of plays, fiction, essays and poetry and became one of London's most popular playwrights in the 1890s. He is remembered for many of his works including The Picture of Dorian Gray and The Importance of Being Earnest. He is also remembered because of his imprisonment—charges of sodomy and homosexuality—and his death in 1900, reportedly of syphilis, but more likely meningitis.
Today anyone can be themselves. Good thing too because "everyone else is taken."
