Hacks Newsletter – Week 36 – Hacks: The Highlights Reel

“ Lovers and madmen have such seething brains,
Such shaping fantasies, that apprehend
More than cool reason ever comprehends.
The lunatic, the lover and the poet
Are of imagination all compact:
One sees more devils than vast hell can hold,
That is, the madman: the lover, all as frantic,
Sees Helen’s beauty in a brow of Egypt:
The poet’s eye, in fine frenzy rolling,
Doth glance from heaven to earth, from earth to heaven;
And as imagination bodies forth
The forms of things unknown, the poet’s pen
Turns them to shapes and gives to airy nothing
A local habitation and a name.”

Hacks: The Highlights Reel.

We are officially half-way through summer 2020. From the global pandemic to the social upheaval we’ve witnessed over the past few months, it has certainly been a summer filled with “things unknown” and events that “apprehend more than cool reason ever comprehends” as the Bard put it in A Midsummer Night’s Dream

To quote another great mind, my good friend and coach to the athletic stars Abdul Sillah, “it’s not how you start, it’s how you finish. Start strong, finish stronger.” As we head into the summer’s final months, I hope this Hacks Highlights Reel inspires you to do just that.
