The New American Renaissance?

The history of American Architecture and the Arts--The American Renaissance--was the period from 1876 to 1917.


The American Renaissance came of age as an expression of a national spirit.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, a German writer and statesman, once said: "The decline of literature indicates the decline of a nation."

Some critics say authors failed to address major political issues during this period.

A bicentennial baby, I was born 100 years after the start of The American Renaissance.

​Next year will be 2017.  100 years after The American Renaissance ended.

What does this mean?

I'm not sure.

But I have a feeling we need a new movement in the United States, if not the world.  A return to basics.  A return to what is real.  A hunger for fairness and justice.  A celebration of the honest, hard-working men and women who help others and are glad to be alive.

Imagination + Perspiration = Inspirational Knowledge

Knowledge is power.  Words have power.  The power to change.
