From the editor’s desk
We’ve all heard the saying, “Green with envy.” I know this is going to throw you now because I’m fairly sure you wouldn’t expect me to quote Shakespeare, however, I’ve recently learned the saying “green with envy,” probably comes from some of Shakespeare’s writing where he uses the color green to describe jealousy in a few of his works.
For example, in “Othello,” Lago refers to the “green-eyed monster.” In “Anthony and Cleopatra,” Shakespeare wrote of the “green sickness” — meaning jealousy. In “Merchant of Venice,” Shakespeare even used the term “green-eyed jealousy.”
That being said, I’m usually not the jealous type, but I have to admit green is probably my favorite color ... and this time of year sure doesn’t disappoint those of us who always go for the green crayon in the Crayola box either. Have you noticed? Seemingly overnight, our environment has turned the prettiest shade of green — just like that crayon that lives inside the box. It’s beautiful. I hope you’ve noticed.
