WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE AND YOU DREAM EACH OTHER


WHO AM I?
     Writers are dreamers who gather imaginations and fantasies and bring them down to words. When the reader reads what I have written, you read and imagine or experience my dream – and so you dream along with me. You follow along my thinking and my path through the fantasies to the imaginations.
So, as a writer, I must be aware that the reader and I share an intimate, sacred space. I must be true to the reader because you follow my imagination, my interior becomes your interior; my passions, your passions (even if only for a while.) I must be very careful about what I write because it is not only for my self expression but what I write goes into your soul.
It all begins with the writer’s dream and the reader’s willingness to dream along with him.
     When William Shakespeare wrote sonnets to his lover, he was a writer gathering imaginations and fantasies and bringing them down to words on paper but the words expressed an intimacy and knowledge of the lover not known to the ordinary reader. And, when his lover read his writing, she dreamt his dream in a more intimate way. She followed along his thinking and his path through his intimate fantasies to the imaginations.
     As a writer, he was aware that the reader / lover and he shared a more intensely intimate, sacred space. He was very careful about what he wrote because the response was just as highly charged and evocative for his lover as it is for we readers hundreds of years later.
