“I wandered lonely as a cloud…”

When I read that to celebrate International Cloud Day (March 23) the World Meteorological Society had updated its cloud atlas online,  my response was to recall William Wordsworth’s poem,  “I wandered lonely as a cloud. . .”  Then on Tuesday Neelima Shankardass gave us a wonderful portrait of this poet reviewing his life and work. She enhanced her presentation with visuals onscreen of the houses he lived in, including Dove Cottage, and views of The Lake District where he worked in the solitude which inspired his beautiful creations.

  1. I too saw this Theatre Calgary production. I thought it was magnificent. The acting was superb and the lighting brought the simplicity of the set to life, aided by the haunting music of the single musician. Of course, so much depends on the script and I thought it was a wonderful adaptation of a great book. by Khaled Hosseini, who is one of my favourite authors. I loved his first book (and the play) :The Kite Runner, but I think A Thousand Splendid Suns is even better.
