Taking a moment from current life flux to note that Leonardo da Vinci, a great human being, died 500 years ago on 1519 May 2nd.
His extraordinary powers of observation, his boundless curiosity, and his kindness, live on in our species’ memory.
I will update this post with more thoughts and images throughout this month. In the meantime, go get a copy of Walter Isaacson’s biography for a refreshing look at a life that taught and inspired, and continues to teach and inspire, so many, and take a moment today, and every day, to observe a tree or a leaf or a flower, a grain of sand or flowing water, a bird or a piece of paper in flight, the sun and clouds, moons and stars, the expression of a person sitting in front of you, or passing by, in light and shadow and time.
