Do you think da Vinci knew
he was The Renaissance Man?
Did he know, in his time, the lines he drew,
the connections he made between disciplines were genius
far beyond his personal interest? Did he have a sense
of the greatness, the significance of his daily tasks?
Perhaps they struck him as mundane.
Personally, I think he lacked focus, constantly
flitting from one medium to another, attending
for moments to a discipline before rushing off
to discover a new facet of his work.
