Et Tu, Brute

Jesi Kay

Jesi Kay, poet and aspiring novelist, was born in the Texas panhandle where wide skies, lazy summer days, and rolling thunderstorms sparked her imagination and left lasting memories in her blood. An early reader, poetry and mythology were her passions. So much so that when she was ten years old her step-father gave her his college mythology textbooks to read, which were full of classic poetry and more than enough tales to fill her romantic and inquisitive nature. Jesi loves reading, art, going to the theater, the romanticism of the Victorian era (but not the missing conveniences of indoor plumbing and central air conditioning), running when the heat and humidity cooperate, and cold weather so she can wear her favorite boots and knitwear. Also, she still has those college mythology textbooks, a little worse for wear over time but still intact and telling their stories to her. Jesi is a contributor at The Well Tempered Bards blog and at

    I always think people that can recall Shakespeare so clearly are brilliant and they intimidate me. I’m going to work through that and comment: Really lovely writing. My heart is heavy for your struggle and can’t wait to read of your triumph!

      Thank you so much!
      And I’d like to think that I’m not that intimidating, except that I tend to be introverted to an extent and sometimes that comes across as distant and intimidating, doesn’t it. LOL
      I’m so glad you commented!

    Perhaps a distraction may offer up such bravery, some reading of Shakespeare’s own ink aloud at a whisper, or to oneself, while your skin absorbs such inked writings with more permanence.
