Shakespeare Slept Here (in Austin)

Recent research indicates that Shakespeare spent his formative years in Austin, Texas, drinking beer, as do most young men in their formative years.

Plenty of other lesser students of literature have done the same in Austin, Texas, with far fewer (as of yet) accomplishments. So we patiently await word of their singular contributions to literature and world peace. 

Shakespeare left his angular mark in Austin on East 6th Street, above. When I’m not in Austin, Texas, I’m frequently shooting other meaningful things, from the today and yesterday, but not tomorrow (yet). You’ll find more in my Time Travels, HERE.
