Ay, there’s the rub.

These most famous lines are the hardest. They make me feel like I should add something meaningful to the discourse around them. Or do something so far out, so irreverent, maybe, that I side-step the discourse entirely. I want to go to cooking or a rug burn in progress. But there’s really nothing there to see once you go there. It’s like a one hit bad joke.

There is, I suppose, a rub in everything if you look closely enough. And sometimes it’s better not to look too closely. The rub may reveal itself anyway. There is many a thing I wouldn’t have done if I’d seen the rub at first.

But even if I’d known it would look like this, if I’d seen the rub of choosing an artist’s life, I’d probably have chosen it anyway.
