I went to the most amazing lecture today. It was by Dr Charlie Weiss and Gail Trimble, on Latin Literature (to be precise, Gods in Homer and how Virgil's Aeneid relates to Homer's Odyssey and Illiad). I feel inspired - so much so that I'm considering Latin as a 5th A level. It's silly, even thinking about that amount of work - but I feel compelled to do it now that I've set myself the challenge. I love Greek and Roman literature - the connections seem so obvious once pointed out, so full of meaning. I love the feelings behind it, thoughts conveyed.
