June 18--Leonardo da Vinci, Head of a Man in Profile Facing to the Left. How could da Vinci keep all his ideas in his head, Juliana wondered as she studied the sketch of the man's profile, I'll bet it was buzzing like a beehive in his brain. The displays had already shown his war machine drawings and his thoughts about flight. He had so many interest, so many talents. She admired da Vinci and his penchant for secrecy. His most spectacular ideas and theories he wrote out in his notebooks but he wrote backwards so that no one could steal them. Pretty clever. Since most people couldn't read, it must have looked like code.
Bah. My brain felt like oatmeal last night, and not with blueberries and walnuts on it like in the new Mickey D's commercial. (Don't you love that old lady? "In my day oatmeal had only two ingredients--oat and meal." Perfect.) It's a lovely dark and rainy day today. We need it. Too bad it's supposed to hit 90 too. Ah well, can't have everything. See ya!
