O, tis too true.

I’ve been drawing spirals for the last ten minutes. I find myself entirely uninspired by this line. Often the shorter, simpler lines give me some sort of odd boost but today it just sent me spiraling. What is too true in my life? Too too too many things.

How is this line in the play? Well, it’s small talk, really. It’s the King’s masking line. It’s an “indeed.” Or “Yes.” With some extra oomph. It’s Claudius saying something to hide the impact of hearing the previous line in his awakening conscious. His devil is breaking out of its sugar shell and he is talking to cover it.

Or, he’s just starting to feel the truth and cannot help but speak it out now.
