Da Vinci

I took my time-travel machine back to May 2nd, 1519, to a large château in the city of Amboise, France. I wandered around until I found the room with Leonardo Da Vinci on his death bed.

Leonardo was alone, as his nurse was asleep in a chair outside the room.

Leonardo looked up at me and said something in Italian. I don’t speak the language, so I pointed to my mouth and shook my head. He was breathing fast, and looked very tired, and afraid. I picked up a towel from the nightstand, and mopped his fevered brow.

I sat down in a chair next to Leonardo and held his hand. His breathing slowed. His eyes got soft. I began to hum a song to him that I made up. His eyes closed and he smiled. His breath came to a stop. I put his hands, one over the other, on his chest.

I took his picture with my iPhone and left the room. I got back in my time machine and returned to the current time. I hooked up the phone to my computer and downloaded the death photo of Leonardo Da Vinci. I put the photo in a folder called DHC. That stands for Dead Historic Celebrities.

I get a lot of pleasure traveling back in time to just before the death moment of famous people in history. When I arrive, I do what I can to bring them peace of mind. And when they die, I snap their picture. Helping them relax often results in a photo with a posthumous beatific expression.

The previous week I traveled back 1336 BC to share the final moments of life with Akhenaten, an 18th dynasty pharaoh of Egypt. He also lay in his death bed. When he saw me, he said, “Osiris!” who was the god of the afterlife. He must have thought I was there to accompany him to the after-world. He slipped away with a grin like the Cheshire Cat.
