Friday 5!

By October 20, 2017Friday Five
Hi team,
Thanks for reading today. Here is your Friday 5 – have a great weekend!
What I’m Reading
Fascinating Story
The Last da Vinci – In 2005, a painting was picked up at an estate sale that had some interesting features. The painting was restored to its original state and now experts are certain it was painted by Leonardo da Vinci. Can you imagine? It’s about to be auctioned off, but I had a chance to see it today in San Francisco. It was humbling and inspiring to see such a transcendent work. If you have a chance to see it before the auction (I think it will be in London and New York), GO.

What I’m Listening To
Get Over It – The Eagles
Sometimes we need compassion and sympathy, and sometimes we need someone to tell us to get over it and move on. I encountered this song because a young patient with cancer requested it. If they can see the value in it while enduring cancer treatment, maybe we all better listen.
