Chaos and Creativity


“In times of widespread chaos and confusion, it has been the duty of more advanced human beings — artists, scientists, clowns and philosophers — to create order. In times such as ours, however, when there is too much order, too much management, too much programming and control, it becomes the duty of superior men and women to fling their favorite monkey wrenches into the machinery. To relieve the repression of the human spirit, they must sow doubt and disruption.” ~ Tom Robbins

“I tell you: one must still have chaos in one, to give birth to a dancing star. I tell you: you have still chaos in you.” ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

“You don’t see something until you have the right metaphor to let you perceive it”  ~ James Gleick

This could become a totally political post, if I let it, which I won’t, so it won’t. I’ve become angry over what is being shoveled out by Trump and his minions. It is starting to look like we already have the dictatorship in place and functioning. That aside, I’ve kinda squeezed myself short of writing time, and not only that, I have also drifted too far into pessimism. That I can fix. It’s a workday, and that will help me out of this little dark space. Fun, satisfaction, that sort of thing. Between work and waiting for some rain, I’ll be shaking off this . . . . ummmm, I’m not really sure what to call it. I’ll be back tomorrow, and likely in a better space, because that’s the way I want it, so I will make it so. Geez, some of these few sentences are really clunky. Whatever. With all this chaos around, conditions are prime for creativity. Today it’s all about chaos and creativity. And on we go . . . .

Peace out, y’all. Goof gloriously.
