There is an old saying that "those who don't study history are doom to repeat it and those that study history are to stand by helplessly while everyone repeats it." Actually we stand by and watch, then we analyze it and write about it! History is not all dusty old books and hours of writing, there are historians for almost everything that you can think of from astronauts to rock-n-roll to zoos. History can be fun. It allows us to get into the events and attempt to figure out the how and the why. History helps us to find out who we are and how we got where we are. History is my passion and part of that passion is to teach others how they too can love history.
My other great passion is literature. Literature encompasses much more that the classic novels, it is everything from rap music to soap operas. Reading can take you anywhere if you open your mind up and let it lead you there. Literature and History are two fields that go hand in hand. One can learn a lot about the world around the writer by reading the texts of their time.
