Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

An homage to St. Izzy O'Cayce

St. Izzy O'Cayce who lives down by the river is a friend of mine who teaches the "lingua aeterna" at a distinguished local school. It is in his honor that I post links to a story that J shared with he and I from the NY Times and also a cool link to a radio station in Finland that broadcasts weekly news reports in Latin.

NY Times: A Vote for Latin

NY Aetas: Sufferagium Latin

YLE Radio 1: Nuntii Latini

And the Encyclopedia or Encyclopedias: Vicipaedia

And since Izzy is a fan: Radio 1 is now offering Poems of Horace put to Jazz
Jazz in Latin
At the observance of the 2000th anniversary of the death of Horace (Quintus Horatius Flaccus), a collection of traditional jazz was released, sung in Latin to texts adapted from Horace and translated by Professor Pekkanen. More details:
