Shakespeer y Shakespeare.


Shakespeer
acontece en un cruce improbable de dos sentidos.

El primero, en la unión de dos palabras: shake [-up] (sacudir, agitar, remover bruscamente; debilitar, desalentar... pero también zafarse, liberarse). Y peer que, en una de sus acepciones señala a quienes son pares en un grupo (por edad, posición social y/o habilidades) y en laotra acepción describe la posesión de título nobiliario en el Reino Unido (esto incluye a quienes alcanzan honor de
Lord y por eso su lugar en la Cámara).

El segundo sentido es más intuitivo: la similitud fonética con el apellido del genial William, quien conocía varios (más) de los vericuetos del corazón humano.


En ese cruce breve, en ese chispazo más que improbable, en ese enlace natural, se despliega este blog.

  2. A hundred and sixty years ago, most nurses did not study nursing, but a British woman, called Florence Nightingale tried to change this lack of proper education. In the 1850s she worked in a hospital for wounded soldiers in the Crimea (now Ukraine) – then there was a war during from 1850 to 1853. People say she never slept but spent all her time helping the men. The soldiers called her ‘The Lady of the Lamp’ because of the lamp she always carried as she walked around at night through the wounded. When she returned to England, she began a school of nursing in London. This great lady died in 1910.


I want to be cool, just like these good people.
