Two weeks ago, I was just about to send a fall newsletter and hop on a plane to NY when I received a call from my brother that my father, Leonard Shlain, was going in for emergency brain surgery. He made it through, but the tumor was determined to be malignant. He is a very beloved man and many of you are probably familiar with his books (“Art & Physics”, “The Alphabet vs The Goddess” and “Sex, Time & Power”.) Ironically he was in the process of completing his latest book â€œLeonardoâ€™s Brainâ€ about Leonardo Da Vinci. I made a get well site for him at www.leonardshlain.com and if you would like to leave a comment I’m sure he would love to read them.
