I’ve been reading and thinking about pareidolia and art and how it leads people to see deeper meaning in random shapes. Our brain naturally wants to convert randomness into meaning. Call it Rabbit in a Snowstorm and Wilson Fisk will kill over it.
This is the shirt Teddy Roosevelt was wearing when he was shot giving a speech. He continued talking for 84 minutes to finish his speech.
It is on display at the Teddy Roosevelt Birthplace in NYC.
This is where I will share what I am currently working on and reading/thinking/learning about. I expect to post about roughly once per month. As a “polymath, pain in the ass,” you can expect to see everything from PubMed studies, to books I am reading, to other artists I find interesting. I love creating and throwing around ideas so hopefully something here brings you joy or inspires you.
Have you watched the Brene Brown special on Netflix? If not, get on it! After watching it, of course I had to read “Daring Greatly”. I have also been watching “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction”. It’s a good complement to the book, because many of the interview subjects touch on the topics of being brave and having the courage to be vulnerable, the Ellen Degeneris episode especially.
I’ve been trying to pay more attention to the times when I am scared and to dig deeper and to also do less thinking, more feeling. Sometimes I get this wrong and end up thinking about feelings. Whoops!
