Down, down, down the rabbit hole...

When I become obsessed with something, I study it. I mean Youtube University, podcasts, reference books, down, down, down the rabbit hole. Turning my specimen over and over again, peering at it from different angles. This is a glimpse into just where my mind goes whenever I read a good book. You know the kind that stays with you long after you’ve read it. I’ll see the themes represented in the text over and over again in the music I listen to, the shows I watch, other things I read and more. Most of what you’ll see is literary as I’ve been teaching English (language, literature and rhetoric) for 15 years, but I’m also a biological, social, and behavioral science enthusiast so there’s lots of scienc-y stuff in here too. And sometimes some history, and sometimes some philosophy. So come and journey with me. |
