(San Francisco, California)
"I roamed the countryside searching for answers
to things that I did not understand.
Why shells existed on the tops of mountains....
Why the thunder lasts a longer time than that which causes it....
Why a bird sustains itself in the air....
These questions and other strange phenomena engage
my thought throughout my life."
-- Leonardo DA VINCI (1452-1519)
