Dakota and I talk about the wonders that people do without seeking recognition. There are hidden geniuses among us, that aren’t recognized in their lifetimes. Maybe you know one.

The neighbours and friends of Van Gogh, Henry Darger, James Hampton, Vivian Maier, and so many others didn’t know that there was a hidden drive to create occuring before them. Yet, some of the greatest works of art and accomplishment in history, have occurred behind the scenes and only revealed after the death of the genius in question. It’s fair to wonder how many we have missed, and to bemoan the tragedy of their not understanding the appreciation that came afterwards for their work.
