Aesop: unclear biography, no written fables, with timeless morals

This post shares a link from fellow freelance writer Tolovaj – a magical writer who hails from Ljubljana, Slovenia. Tolovaj doesn’t just publish written material. Tolovaj publishes masterpieces! When you visit the articles, you become instantly mesmerized. The information is fascinating reading, but the layout and presentation of the images that complement the content is absolutely exquisite! This particular link is to a mini-bio of the famous fabulist, whom we all know as Aesop, but whom we also don’t know very much about. (???) To put it in Tolovaj’s words: ” … his fables are much more clear than his biography.”
After reading the article I was moved to remark that if Aesop’s fables are an indication of his character, he would definitely have been included in my circle of friends.
