Colonial Parkway

I spent a day driving the Colonial Parkway today.

I had a car, hours in front of me, and a deep-seated desire to experience the Fall colors and crisp air, and the other-worldliness of the Parkway, all 23 miles of its winding curves with no stop lights or stop signs.

This American Life

Act V

One of my favorite This American Life episodes, about the fifth act of Hamlet, performed by murderers who give extreme insight into the play, Shakespeare, the characters, and life. It’s always touching, always heart-breaking, and always magnificient. Listen to it here, by clicking on the speaker icon next to “full episode.”
