While in that Shakespearean frame of mind, it struck me that my mood was perfectly captured in this evocative music video performance of Elizabethan songwriter John Dowland's "Now, O now I needs must part" by Les Canards Chantant". The lyrics are about romantic love, but the sentiments expressed hit that bittersweet spot right on target. Perfect for when you want a brief wallow in melancholy.
Now, the sun is shining, the temperature going all the way up to 0C, and the new year beckons. Time to get going with some new designs!
