The experts disagree on how many works Leonardo created. There are generally fifteen paintings experts agree were done by Leonardo along with and a handful of others that are disputed. It is believed there are many more works that have been lost through the years or remain unidentified. Then there are his manuscripts. Volumes of notebooks filled with his writing span the whole of his adult life.

Learning and understanding are important, but nothing exists without doing. It is a slow steady process. The work we do every day adds up to a legacy. The act of doing keeps us alive.

What will you do today?

  1. The act of doing keeps us alive.

    A compelling conclusion. When we do something, we do it and leave something behind. Which becomes the legacy you cite. And while we’re doing, nearly all of us, mind and body, is involved. We’re being used in the way we were made. This is living.

    Great, poetic reasoning!
