If Bottom wrote a blog, I wonder what he would have said about being the object of Titania's brief passion for him during 'the dream'.

Regardless of his limited transformation, Shakespeare's image of this sudden love for Bottom as donkey or 'ass', can be dehistorisized here in MY blog to argue that the donkey's 'shape' is reason enough to love it . There are more than a few blogs out there expressing similar enthusiastic affection for their donkeys or mules thatTitania displays for the transformed Bottom.

Sean, the male sheep she lives with won't let me close enough to brush her right now: all the females are in heat and apparently Opal is also off limits.
And what does all this have to do with flowers? Absolutely nothing. I've tried to make a connection, but until I can set a garland over Opal's ears, my passion for both is the only common denominator.
