"Maria, at the supermarket delicatessen, always cheerful, sends you off with variations of: 'have a wonderful day," "have a wonderful Sunday", "have a wonderful rest of the week end." And she means it. Today, as I buy some ham, she says: "have some wonderful sandwiches!"
"Who is it who can tell me who I am?" King Lear speaking. I couldn't place the quote, which was put to me by Lucy as a cue for my next contribution to the Compasses collaboration in which we are engaged. But once I had looked it up and recalled its contents it began to haunt me. Ten monosyllabic words, which seem so important when you think about their meaning in the play. I wasn't quite sure how to proceed with the answer, but Lear pointed the way to a resonance. My answer is posted on Compasses today.
