My job (the one that pays, not the writing) covers many different areas, and allows me to learn all sorts of different things.
One of the things I’m currently learning about is the Renaissance. It sounds like an amazing time. All that culture and learning and creativity. Definitely one of the more exciting times in human history. Learning about what people were able to achieve hundreds of years ago is always an eye-opener, and puts lots of so-called modern day achievements into perspective.
