Yes, there is a story to the above cartoon. And I will now tell you that story.
It begins when a friend of mine asks me to draw his logo. He wanted a lizard in a hammock strung up between two palm trees. There are times in my life where I have no creativity. I tried, but everything I did seemed wrong. Needless to say, I didn’t do the drawing.
Fast forward about eight years, I am moving to a new place, and as things get seen that haven’t been seen in quite awhile, I discover that I had the above drawing in my arsenal for years before my friend asked me to draw the lizard. If only I had remembered this drawing, I could have replaced the Gomer in the hammock with a lizard. Simple.
The moral of the story? Sometimes, I wish I had a smarter brain.
Black and Blue or White and Gold?
Yanny or Laurel?
Moron or Stable Genius?
What in the world is going on here? Why do we see (and hear) the world so differently? Are we having trouble agreeing with reality? And why are there only two versions of reality? Have you ever heard someone say that they see a red and yellow dress, or that they hear Richard, or that Trump is a normal, mild-mannered individual of average intelligence?
Allow me to postulate a hypothesis. Think about this…the human brain consists of two hemispheres. That’s right, I said two. Do you get my drift? Are you picking up what I am putting down? Are you getting the gist of it?
