Josh Ritter Sings “Change of Time”

[Josh Ritter plays]

Josh Ritter: This song is called “Change of Time,” and it’s from “So Runs the World Away.”

 

I had a dream last night; I dreamt that I was swimming

And the stars up above, directionless and drifting

And somewhere in the dark were the sirens and the thunder

And around me as I swam, the drifters who’d gone under

Time love, time love, time love. 

 

Time love, time love, time love, it’s only a change of time. 

 

I had a dream last night, and rusting far below me

Battered hulls and broken hardships

Leviathan and lonely

I was thirsty so I drank, and though it was salt water

There’s something about the way it tasted so familiar

Time love, time love, time love

 

Time love, time love, time love, it’s only a change of time. 

 

The black clouds I’m hanging, this anchor I’m dragging

The sails of memory rip open in silence

We cut through the lowlands, all hands through the saltlands

The white caps of memory, confusing and violent.

 

I had a dream last night, when I opened my eyes

Your shoulder blade your spine were shorelines in the moonlight

New worlds for the weak, new lands for the living

I could make it if I tried; I closed my eyes, I kept on swimming

Time love, time love, time love, it’s only a change of time love

 

Time love, time love, it’s only a change of time love,

Time, time love it’s only a change of time love, time love,

It’s only a change of love—seas that carry me wherever I go

Rough seas, they carry me wherever I go,

Rough seas they carry me wherever I go,

Rough seas, they carry me wherever I go.

Leonardo da Vinci could visually flip between dimensions, neuroscientist claims

A neuroscientist argues that da Vinci shared a disorder with Picasso and Rembrandt.

Christopher Tyler
Mind & Brain
  • A neuroscientist at the City University of London proposes that Leonardo da Vinci may have had exotropia, allowing him to see the world with impaired depth perception.
  • If true, it means that Da Vinci would have been able to see the images he wanted to paint as they would have appeared on a flat surface.
  • The finding reminds us that sometimes looking at the world in a different way can have fantastic results.

Education vs. learning: How semantics can trigger a mind shift

The word "learning" opens up space for more people, places, and ideas.

Future of Learning
  • The terms 'education' and 'learning' are often used interchangeably, but there is a cultural connotation to the former that can be limiting. Education naturally links to schooling, which is only one form of learning.
  • Gregg Behr, founder and co-chair of Remake Learning, believes that this small word shift opens up the possibilities in terms of how and where learning can happen. It also becomes a more inclusive practice, welcoming in a larger, more diverse group of thinkers.
  • Post-COVID, the way we think about what learning looks like will inevitably change, so it's crucial to adjust and begin building the necessary support systems today.
