About

Three things: 1. Listening to Othello, drifting in and out of sleep, I hear Iago warn his master, 'Beware my lord of jealousy! It is the green-eyed monster; cruelly aye it doth mock the meat it feeds on, and with its poison doth change our nature.' 2. A dislocated groove repeatedly interrupts a seduction in the 'Earth, Wind and Fire' song Can't Hide Love. 3. Trellis: what my sweet peas climb up each summer. It's loosely woven together from strips of wood - named after the light-textured Roman fabric trilicius, 'woven with three threads'.
