Just recorded the walking tour for Olana Historic Site with Paul Riccardi, working at the wonderful Wave Farm in Accra. We swapped sections all day and had a grand time. Next time you go to Olana, be sure to get the audio tour!
“…I understood that the need to tell stories was deeply embedded in our minds and inseparably entangled with the mechanisms that generate and absorb language. Narrative imagination – and therefore fiction – was a basic evolutionary tool of survival. We processed the world by telling stories, produced human knowledge through our engagement with imagined selves.”
