Words: Los Angeles is Los Angeles is Los Angeles…

In Howl -Ginsberg aptly shares,

“Los Angeles is Los Angeles is Los Angeles….”

Words. And every symbol is a sign, a pointer to an idea.

Delicious words. We eat them up.

Brain Pickings is one of my favorite culture curators.

Here is a film by visual storyteller Temujin Doran:

And WNYC’s Radiolab:

Food for thought: What is it that happens in human beings when we get symbols and we start trading symbols? It changes our thinking, it changes our ideas.” ~ Susan Shaller
