Mental Monday #29: Sans teeth, eyes, taste---sans everything

All the world's a stage
Ancient Greek amphitheater: Linocut in progress
And all the men and women merely players;
They have their exits and their entrances,
And one man in his time plays many parts,
His acts being seven ages. At first the infant,
Mewling and puking in the nurse's arms.
Then, the whining school-boy with his satchel
And shining morning face, creeping like snail

Ancient Greek amphitheater: Linocut in progress
Unwillingly to school. And then the lover,
Sighing like furnace, with a woeful ballad
Made to his mistress' eyebrow. Then a soldier,
Full of strange oaths, and bearded like the pard,
Jealous in honor, sudden, and quick in quarrel,

Seeking the bubble reputation
~ excerpt from William Shakespeare's As You Like It
