"All we have to believe with is our senses, the tools we use to perceive the world: our sight, our touch, our memory. If they lie to us, then nothing can be trusted. And even if we do not believe, then still we cannot travel in any other way than the road our senses show us; and we must walk that road to the end."

Neil Gaiman
American Gods

I love Neil Gaiman and actually own that book. Haven't read it yet. Is it as good as I assume it is?

Also, great pic and caption as always!

and thus is why drugs are bad :D
lol.

very nice @keifel.
possibly its faith.
alweays interested in the way we adjust to the world from birth to death and as well as the experience of living.. the experiences that are in being born and making sense from the data we are fed from the senses.
also interesting how perception can be altered or tweaked to give new ways of looking at or experiencing being human.

Are you showing off a book a day? I have a theory that your house is made of books.

Like Hansel and Gretel only not as tasty.

Though books are brain food

Now I've confused myself

maybe i'm way too shallow, but I don't think i agree. MLK Jr Had never experienced equality with his senses or his memory, but he strongly believed in something that he could not see, something that others before him did not see.

One of my favorite fiction novels of all time! And Anansi Boys was a fun follow up. When Neil decides to do another American Gods-related book, I'm so ready! @keifel so good to meet you last night!

Neil Gaiman is one of my favorite writers. And there are only a couple degrees of separation between us. It is one of the great disappointments of my life that I have never actually met him. I have come close, but have not yet made it.
