Puck (to the audience):
If we shadows have offended,
Think but this, and all is mended:
That you have but slumbered here
While these visions did appear.
And this weak and idle theme,
No more yielding but a dream,
Gentles, do not reprehend.
If you pardon, we will mend.
And, as I am an honest Puck,
If we have unearned luck
Now to scape the serpent's tongue
We will make amends ere long,
Else the Puck a liar call.
So good night unto you all.
Give me your hands if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends.
I start my dream where Shakespeare ended his, with Puck’s epilogical speech from “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”.
Welcome to my web site. I hope you like Lego, literature, Macintosh computers, books, papercraft, art, theatre, music and thoughts on politics and philosophy because that’s what you’ll find here. Even if only one or two of those topics attract you I hope you enjoy my thoughts and writing.
On a more sombre note, I also suffer from Major Depression and write a great deal about how that feels. These posts sometimes feel a little too raw but I believe I owe my reader honesty.
My name is Tony Williams and I live in the inner west of Sydney, Australia. I use the online nickname ‘Honestpuck’ since there are for too many people that share my name. I’ve previously been a Macintosh system administrator, a desktop support consultant at a major Australian university specializing in Macintosh computers, an IT manager, a Unix programmer, a software support technician, a help desk manager, a consultant, and an associate editor of Australian Macworld. I’m now employed in system support at UNSW Australia.
I describe myself as a “professional Mac geek.” I’m waiting for the laws to change before marrying my Mac Mini.
When I’m not working I spend my time building with Lego or paper and cardboard, reading almost anything between two covers, riding my motor scooter or pushbike and watching a lot of theatre, film and television.
