Fantasy imagination brain tumor strange new worlds Muses

Art imitates life. In 1992 I had brain surgery to remove a benign tumor. The scene in ICU with the Dr. Tso is real (though the name is not) and almost word for word, except that my doc had a gaggle of med students with him. I also really did fall madly in love with James Earl Jones's voice. I love it to this day. I did not lose the Muse when the tumor was removed. I did, however, develop a sudden and deep love of baseball. My head sloshed and went popple, popple, popple for roughly two years.
