I was listening to a podcast that mentioned the word, “renaissance.” That got me thinking about the idea of the “renaissance man.” Then I started playing around with that phrase and attaching it to Mr. da Vinci.

The mind is a strange organ.

  1. Ha! Ha! I like your Renaissance Man–he reminds me of your Grandpa Rapier. Now he really was a kind of renaissance man, although you didn’t get to know him in all his dimensions. Grandpa was not only very intelligent, both math/science and verbal, he was a gifted artist and inventor. He was quite the showman in his younger days, too, singing everything from opera to bawdy vaudeville and able to tap dance and mime. I wish you boys had been able to know him more.
