Leonardo da Vinci by Jay Williams

In his youth, Leonardo da Vinci wrote confidently, "I wish to work miracles." By the time of his death in 1519, when he was sixty-seven and famed throughout Europe, it seemed that he had accomplished wonders aplenty as an artist, engineer, inventor, and scientist. Here, from author Jay Williams, is the moving story of the man behind the Renaissance myth.

Genius Portrayed I really enjoyed this fast-paced, well-written book about Leonardo. It paints a human portrait of him. It's surprising how few works he actually finished. Today, he'd be diagnosed with ADD. Highly recommended.

This small book of 92 pages holds more information than volumes. I was so mesmerized by the story of such a man I didn't want the final page to come. After I ingested, digested all that was Da Vinci I went to see an exhibit at the Rochester Museum of Science. It was so helpful reading the book first. Gift yourself and buy the book. It is so worth the short time it takes to read it.

I love you too!!  I can't imagine a world without you.  I have to be careful because I am on my mom's computer so when I am done I will have to clear her history.  I love you so much Dustin!  Remember you can always text or call me.  You don't have to let anyone know.  My heart races when I think about you.  Tell Tom that he's a gem.  LOL.  He is nice. I am so glad he is taking care of you.  I could talk to you both forever.  School and home have gotten kind of rough.  People at school are kind of ignoring me for some reason. :/  Who knows why....  oh well.  And at home, I just want to curl up and think about you all night.  I am trying to save up to buy a NOOK in secret.  I have a $30 gift card and someone I know doesn't use hers so I might get her gift card.  I really hope so. I love you so much Dustin.  I just ate some french toast. XD  it was delicious like your lips. hehehe ♥  I love you so much. so so so so so  so so so so so so so so much.  I will always love you.  When you and Katy, I mean, If you and Katy end up getting married, will you pretty please invite me to your wedding?  I would hate to miss something so important.  But if you can't, I understand.  I got to go before I get caught.  I might reply later tonight but I can always reply when I am at school during lunch.  I love you so much.  I can reply to you tomorrow around 12:20 pm my time (which is probably the same as you) because I will be at lunch.  So if you can, it would be nice if we could talk for a few minutes.  I love love love you Homeslice.  I FREAKING LOVE YOU, BABE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  -Love Always, Audrey Pohl
