Shakespeare Solved ®

Shakespeare Solved ® is a forthcoming series of novels that covers the Bard's entire life and work.

These novels solve the mysteries surrounding Shakespeare by transporting us back in time, to walk in his shoes, and see his world through his eyes.

Only when we see Shakespeare in his original historical context can we understand what his plays and poems really mean.

This blog explains some of my ideas and discoveries, to prepare for this series of novels.

Discoveries & Discoverers -- Rae Heim

We live in an age where so many discoveries are being made.

I discovered a new way to see Shakespeare, and Rae Heim is discovering the United States, running from coast to coast -- barefoot!

Yes, as in not wearing any shoes.

You may have heard of minimalist running, with shoes that have thinner soles.

But Rae is running just with the feet she was born with.

You may not consider her discovery as significant as say, finding the location of the Curtain Theatre, but in her own way, she is breaking many pre-conceived notions about the human body. Sometimes it seems that we are only just beginning to understand the potential for the human body, and I don't think we fully comprehend how much we can endure.

I love stories like this -- about the three men who ran across Africa (111 days for a distance of 4300 miles, or 6920 kilometers). I especially love the fact that Eddie Izzard ran across the UK (43 marathons in 51 days) when he had never run more than a couple hundred yards before, and he did it when he was 47 years old!

Well, those guys did it with shoes!

I have a confession -- I have been running barefoot for the last 6 months and love it! It takes hard work and patience, but the results are worth it.

I applaud her spirit and I encourage you to learn more about her, and the charity for which she is running.
