“In a river the water you touch is the last of what has passed and the first of what is to come. It is the same with the present time.” – Leonardo da Vinci

Translated from the Italian:  “L’acqua che tocchi dei fiumi e l’ultima di quella che andò e la prima di quella che viene.  Così il tempo presente.” (If you have a more accurate translation, please email [email protected] – We would love your help!)
