its laws and maxims, mastered by our hearts;

with passion that no other could impart.

  6. I admire the skill taken to translate modern song lyrics into Shakespearean English. For some reason, though, I found it hard to 'take' to this book as I did to Ian Doescher's 'Star Wars/Shakespeare' series.

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.

Here is why having good communication and PR skills, and even studying to improve them using something like an online master of communication management degree from the University of Southern California, is so vital for blog owners.
