Feeling Medieval Today

Today for whatever reason I'm feeling rather medieval. This happens every once in a while that I begin to pine for the days of kings, queens, chivalry, saints, and the modest peasant life. It usually culminates in my searching for a new album to buy.

Today I purchased a CD of medieval ballads.. It sounds a little modern and I don't understand French but it has quelled my desire to hear a medieval troubadour walk by my house with a lute.

When thinking about the middle ages I generally leave out the plagues, starvation, famine, and a host of other unseemly things. There is a place in history for that stuff, but its not in my imagination. This was the age of the Faith, Kingdoms, and incredible art.
