The more things change…

About 410 years ago, Shake­speare wrote in The Sec­ond Part of King Hen­ry the Fourth:

Like one that draws the mod­el of a house

Beyond his pow­er to build it; who, half through,

Gives o’er and leaves his part-cre­at­ed cost

A naked sub­ject to the weep­ing clouds,

And waste for churl­ish win­ter’s tyranny.


And a love­ly addi­tion to the land­scape for the rest of us!

Unfinished house
