[ Disclaimer:  First of all, thank you for your visit.  The written material on this website represent my notes on a subject (the Shakespeare Authorship Question) that has fascinated me for many years.  I am not a Shakespeare scholar, no do I pretend to be one.  All mistakes/errors are mine alone.  I do present original material, as you will see, that represents a parallax view of looking at who the possible author of the Shakespeare canon is.  My premise is that the man we call Shakespeare is fictitious, whose attributed work is the combined result of several writers who worked with a master poet.  It is my belief that Edward de Vere, the 17th Earle of Oxenforde, is this master poet.  Of course, this is obviously a theory.  I ask questions that are valid, as the purpose of all research is to answer questions of “Why?”  I do not profess certainty, but only probabilities.  I welcome all corrections and points of view. ]


When my granddaughter, Anabelle, was three-years-old, she saw her first rainbow.  Not in the sky, but on the floor of our living room.  We have floor-to-ceiling windows, and hanging outside above the largest window was a crystal bird.  Of course, the science of white light passing through a prism was not part of her observed experience of the world.  My feeble attempt to explain sunlight coming through this crystal bird made little sense to her, but the pretty light on the floor was pure magic to her. Her whole being lit up.  I realized she was having her first spiritual experience.  For the next few weeks, she discovered rainbows everywhere.  And one evening, on a beach in Hawaii, she stood in awe, mouth open, and stared at one of the grandest rainbows I have ever seen.  Along with her, I, too, had a spiritual experience.  Not just because of the rainbow, but because I experienced her awe.  As Wordsworth put it, she was ” . . . quiet as a nun, Breathless with adoration.”
