I’ve spoken of coincidences before. Here’s another one.

This afternoon at about 5.10pm I bought the DVD of The Tempest, Shakespeare’s play starring Helen Mirren. (It was only $5 at Coles)

Now, 90 mins later, I’m reading The Guardian on-line:

[Aldous Huxley’s] Brave New World was published in 1932. The title comes from Miranda’s speech in Shakespeare’s The Tempest: “Oh, wonder! / How many goodly creatures are there here! / How beauteous mankind is! Oh brave new world, / That has such people in’t.”

They just keep on comin’.
