Show Me the Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven (12 of 15)

Detail of a floral arrangement for my wife from her daddy the day before Julianna Grace was born.

 

As it sat on the table under a bright overhead light I ket admiring the colors and highlights until, suddenly, I realized I had a great subject to explore!

 

The quote is from Shakespeare:

 

“I shall the effect of this good lesson keep, as watchman to my heart. But, good my brother, do not, as some ungracious pastors do, show me the steep and thorny way to heaven; whilst, like a puff'd and reckless libertine, himself the primrose path of dalliance treads, and recks not his own rede.”

 

— Shakespeare (Hamlet: Act I, Scene 3)
