ooooh i am astounded at the abrasive atmosphere this post has taken on...geez louise,ever feel that someone is jumping down your throat with their beleifs? ouch this started off pretty harmless if you ask me.phew.
Anyhow c&b some people get it,somepeople don't,i guess you could call that having an opinion.The people labeled as mad or weird are always the ones who know what you mean,but the others...well it's like 2 entirely seperate worlds. I am one of the so-called crazies. I'm not crazy,i'm just open to differnt things,and the experience fascinates me i've read alot about the connections between madness and genius/art and misery. And yes i do feel there is one,a strong strong connection!!And just so i'm not attacked for generalization i should point out i don't beleive all madness is genius,all genius madness,all art from pain,or all pain from art. Is that very clear? i just think there's often times a connection between them. It's phenomenal like god and the devil all inside one person,the ability to comprehend and create great things and the price of being outcast by society or plagued by a mental disability.
Icould go on and on,as i have already in past posts,and i'm sure brad is sick of reading all this "crap",but like i say.....2 worlds.
much madness is divinest sense,and much sense the starkest madness~Emily Dickinson
