if life gives you melons

The new issue of BC Musician Magazine is now online and being distributed to better music stores and cooler coffee shops around BC and Alberta. With this issue's theme being the musician as artist, some pretty intriguing content lies beyond the woodcut image gracing the cover.

My article investigates the phenomenon of synesthesia, a neurological oddity in which I have always been fascinated, and, truth be told, which I sort of wish I possessed. You really should read it, you may just recognize the good-hearted victim who was the subject of my interview.

And if you want more morphing of music and art, go ahead, check out the rest of the issue.

Going to go read it now! A couple of years ago, a doctor friend of mine told me I had a form of synesthesia. I don't have the sound/color kind, but until then, I thought everyone must have number lines and day/month/year "pictures" unique to them floating around in their head. I honestly have no idea how people count without forming a picture of where all the numbers go.

So interesting!

Fascinating! All you incredible synesthetes are starting to surface. I would love to pick your brain sometime, Lesley. Almost literally.

Nice read! I wish I had synesthesia, too. Alas, I'll just have to start dropping acid.

Hey I never considered that! Thanks, Beckeye, you are full of great ideas, as always.
