Revisiting the Renaissance…

So I’ve been thinking about councilperson Rebecca Kaplan’s statement last Friday night… “The Renaissance in Oakland has begun!”

Renaissance is defined “the activity, spirit, or time of the great revival of art, literature, and learning in Europe beginning in the 14th century and extending to the 17th century, marking the transition from the medieval to the modern world.” And also “any similar revival in the world of art and learning.”

In an effort to greater understand this period and its significance today with respect to our great city of Oakland, I am off to Europe to do a bit of investigating… Well actually, I have a bit of a vacation planned. But I am going to Europe and am at the international terminal of SFO as we speak…

I am hoping to post while I am gone, which unfortunately is a very brief trip, but if I miss a day or two, please don’t hold it against me…

No photo today… the plane is boarding!! Woo HOO!
