For Peggy - A Write of Passage

My first interaction with Peggy Dobbs was this comment:

She became my Facebook friend, and true to her word, commented on my stuff (Jaded and Abbey Normal and the Fool - either directly or on the book of Face) before she left this earthly realm in June.

A Word With You Press felt her absence so acutely that fearless leader Thornton Sully immortalized her via The (First) Annual Peggy Dobbs Write-of-Passage contest... 750-1000 words in an original piece of fiction or nonfiction that must contain the words, “I swear, it’s not too late.”

I wanted to do something really special for Peggy. So I wrote Shakespeare... ish.
