Welcome to my little corner of the Internet!

WHAT’S A RENAISSANCE WOMAN?

The term ‘Renaissance Man’ usually means someone with many talents or areas of knowledge.  It’s derived from the times of the Renaissance Era in Europe; when human knowledge and art expanded by leaps and bounds in a very short time.  Masters of their craft like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, and the one we all own the modern world to; Johannes Gutenberg.

The ideals of the Renaissance never truly left Western Culture.  Self-improvement is a constant drumbeat in the back of our heads.  And our insatiable curiosity only grown as we find new boundaries.

Now, I don’t know that I have ‘talent’ or ‘knowledge’, however I do have a curiosity for many things.  And curiosity perused leads to talent and knowledge.

WHY A BLOG?

I wanted to share my musings, discoveries, and progress as I wander around this wide world.  There is so much out there; from the pleasantly mundane to the shocking cutting edge.  From the simplicity of painting a box to the complexity of artistic composition.  From the technicality of playing a note to the art of music.

The world is full of wonderful, amusing, and entertaining things.  And I’d like to share these things with you on this blog!

 WHO ARE YOU?

I’ll call myself Ashley Dust.  Yes, it’s a pseudonym.  Because of the nature of my primary blog and my chosen profession, I don’t want to post my name here.  I appreciate you respecting my desire for privacy.

Welcome to The Renaissance Woman!
