Sister Moon

I promised my friend Ellie I'd put this up. She'd written a sonnet that is a response of sorts to Shakespeare's Sonnet 130. Her sonnet is really good and it has the added benefit of being quite funny. Definitely worth reading.

In any case, I told my dear friend that I'd put the following up here. It wasn't exactly what I'd expected, in terms of the video itself; that is actually better....

My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun
My hunger for her explains everything I've done
To howl at the moon the whole night through
And they really don't care if I do
I'd go out of my mind, but for you

--Sting, "Sister Moon"
