Spoiler Alert - Hidden Brain

Sun Dec 9, 2018, 9:51 AM
I truly enjoy the podcast Hidden Brain, but I get caught up in audiobooks and often forget to listen to it.  So, lots n lots of episodes cue up in my phone.  The other day, I'd just finished an audiobook and had a few days until I could download another, per my subscription terms.

So, I dug through the many podcasts that have cued up in my phone and settled on this episode.  I found it rather interesting and maybe of interest to other writers/artists.  It has to do with storytelling and mind/reality bending.  While most of us don't make movies, we do tell stories in prose and verse.... and those stories depend on the workings/tendencies of the human brain.  I don't want to get too deep into it here, just thought was a good casual listen... an entertaining non-waste of 30 minutes of listening time.

Give it a try, click the link and click the play button to play the episode.  Lemme know your thoughts in a comment.

Artist | Literature
United States
My influences are mostly stuck in 20th Century poetry: Cummings, Eliot, Roethke.... and if anyone's not read Audre Lorde, do it NOW (surprising and sad how it still reads like today's current events).

Favorite visual style of art: Art Nouveau vs Modern

About Me:

I'm a proud dad and husband and a bit of a work-aholic.

I was brought up in a very restrictive/conservative Christian denomination. I use art as a recovery device. :)

I quit writing for several years, but have returned to it thanks to dA.

Recurring themes (though maybe not directly referenced) - space, time, ghosts, reincarnation, religion, addiction, abuse, recovery, childhood, parenthood and the patterns and repeating cycles of all of the above.

I believe that good writing should actually take your breath away or at least throw it off track for a second.

Wow! Thank you for choosing Legend of the Seagulls - it's my first daily deviation :D - and i wrote it because salshep wanted me to write something non-fetish, and because of people’s encouragement.

Now i’ve had 500 views in one day i know that people really do look at literature dds her.

I hope you have experienced, or will experience, the thrill of having a stranger who selflessly points a spotlight on something you
thought largely went unnoticed--and makes it jump in the sudden radiance of their attention.  That is what you have done for me.  And let me tell you, it is a thrill.  I thank you for all that you've done (and continue to do), for your kind acts foster encouragement that are felt deeply.  I sincerely wish you the same joy you have given me.  Thank you for your role in awarding me the Daily Deviation.
