For Music Monday, Hildegard of Bingen (1098–1179):
Another quote about Hildegard of Bingen from Honey Meconi:
One the things I love about her is that she was 42 before she started writing anything down. In a sense, I think of her as the patron saint of “late bloomers.”
...Hildegard was also someone who didn’t accept her place in the world. She wrote her books, and created a new language, and, in a male-dominated church, she went on preaching tours at a time when women were not supposed to preach, especially in public.
One more thing that isn't music...YouTube suggested that I watch this and I was impressed. Rajiv Surendra:
