Charlie Chaplin and Einstein

There’s a book I ordered a while back but it hasn’t arrived yet. Cultural Amnesia is the title and a close friends reminded me again about this book. It’s a collection of connections about the 20th C and how many of us have lost our cultural memory of our roots and history.

I’m told, for instance, that Charlie Chaplin and Albert Einstein had a connection despite their disparate approaches to life. The distance between Art and Science was, apparently, not that far after all.

Time to get that book!

Grateful for:

  • MEW, Mandy, Dr. Patel, fracture clinic, and especially Wes who continues to build the backyard waterfall among many other things

Curious about:

  • redundancies
