I discovered Sunny's blog tonight, and it makes me so happy. i love josh sunshine. he is marvellous. direct and frank, incisive and compassionate.
i am playing with a rather vain ambition to write a history of neuroscience paper for my final project in Scandanavian literature...some sort of woven synthesis of literary analysis with stories from neuroscience, history, and biography...all centered on Knut Hamsun, who wrestles with his brain like Jacob asleep at the foot of his ladder. Hamsun conjures bizarre images of his own brain, which he could never see. burning brains, floating and flying brains, brains touched by the finger of God. right now i am swimming around.....i need to be lost for a little while at least before i weave my net and reel myself in.
