'Glad Day' - William Blake

"This above all," Polonius advised his son in Shakespeare's Hamlet: "To thine own self be true, And it must follow, as the night the day, Thou canst not then be false to any man."

Good advice. Advice that might be an encouragement to look within and find our own spark that makes us who we are; that "divine presence within" of which William Blake once spoke. It is the very beginning of becoming an individual who values their liberty.
