Empathy for Leonardo da Vinci

Imagine being a man of genius in an age where technology simply did not exist. This post could end right here and still have the same meaning and impact. In other words, what more I can say will do little when compared to the volume of material available to the casual researcher, on the immense importance of a man truly ahead of his time.

He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. The obligatory Wikipedia link….

It makes my head swim, to think of how this man must have suffered, pondering and dreaming of future things; like living your life stuck in quicksand, knowing you are going to die long before realization brings to fruition all your mind has brought forth to enlighten the world!

There is simply no way I can convey with mere words the empathy I feel for this monumentally important historical figure. I am so blessed to be living in this modern age!
