A Great American President Visits Kalamazoo
Pareidolia (parr-i-DOH-lee-ə) is the psychological phenomenon in which the mind sees patterns that don't exist within what they're seeing. It's one way our brains try to make order out of chaos. One of the most common forms of pareidolia is seeing faces in inanimate objects. The face on Mars. The drunken octopus. Jesus on toast. These shocked and judgmental things. I am not immune to this anomaly, in fact, I whimsically suffer from it to the delight of those around me. Take, for instance, the moment one of the greatest American presidents stopped by my backyard one afternoon.
