   Today is St Swithins day.  According to folklore whatever the weather does today will be the trend for the next 40 days.

   So what better day to blog about ACT ONE SCENE THREE of Julius Caesar

 

Lightning animation.
Tempest dropping fire

 

Cicero and Casca meet in a storm. Casca is frightened and reads portents in the weather.

CASCA

Either there is a civil strife in heaven,
Or else the world, too saucy with the gods,
Incenses them to send destruction

 

CASCA

When these prodigies
Do so conjointly meet, let not men say
‘These are their reasons; they are natural;’
For, I believe, they are portentous things
Unto the climate that they point upon.

 

Cicero is more realistic, and how apt is this phrase

CICERO

But men may construe things after their fashion,
Clean from the purpose of the things themselves.

 Just look at the conspiracy videos on YouTube.

 Casca meets Cassius who persuades him to join him in overthrowing Caesar….Brutus is next

 The weather outside in fine and sunny. So 40 more days of that please St Swithin….
