Brian Musum

What I Love:

I'm motivated by the mental and physical activities that challenge us to increase our fitness, intelligence, emotional capacity, and cultural awareness.There’s a passage in Richard Powers’ novel, The Overstory, where a young woman ponders her short life while sitting amongst the trees of a thousand-year-old forest: “A chorus of living wood sings to the woman: 'If your mind were only a slightly greener thing, we’d drown you in meaning.' The pine she leans against says: 'Listen. There’s something you need to hear...'" …I’m trying to make my mind a slightly greener thing, hoping I can hear more.
