Insights for Boulder from Polonius: Trimming the Verbal Fat

                                                       pic Lenny Lensworth Frieling

Boulder values brevity. After all, “Brevity is the soul of wit.” From the play Hamlet, written by English poet William Shakespeare around 1603. Polonius says it in act 2, scene 2.Some see his “advice to a young man” speech as one good piece of advice after another. A more critical reading IMO in my opinion is that each piece of advice contradicts the advice just given. It is internally contradictory to the point of absurdist humor. BUT in this case, I’m going to listen to Polonius on this one this time, and be brief. This picture was taken this afternoon with a camera disguised as a phone, through my front windshield. I think I was legally pulled over on the shoulder at Legion Park.

I did not want to push it by getting out of the car. It was so bright that I could not see the screen on the back of the phone very much. I clicked a few and deftly pulled back onto Arapahoe. I had just washed the windshield.
