Wade Davis and the Little Big Planet

Back in September, Min bought me Wade Davis tickets as a birthday present. So, feeling very cultural, we headed downtown last Thursday night.

Wow. That guy’s kinda… smart. I mean, I expected this from having read some of his books, but it’s more obvious in person. Not only is he a fabulous storyteller, but he was reeling off facts and foreign pronunciations and dates without even, you know, checking Wikipedia.

Here’s how Min summarized, as we stumbled down Burrard afterwards:

“That guy, having been blessed with a brain, is using it to its full potential. And I’m jumping around on the Mags the Mechanic level, trying to avoid the teeter totters.”

I have yet to read the new book, Into the Silence, but it certainly sounds amazing.
