“Poets do not go mad; but chess-players do. Mathematicians go mad, and cashiers; but creative artists very seldom. I am not, as will be seen, in any sense attacking logic: I only say that this danger does lie in logic, not in imagination.”
― G.K. Chesterton
Many of us like to have an ordered existence. Logic and practicality inform our day and take us from thing to thing, Not that I am against order and organization, tho my life (and office) seem resistant to it, but I have found that the more I rely on systems, the more I tend to feel helpless when the system breaks down. I believe that I am not alone in this. I can handle almost anything that happens as long as I acknowledged that potential. It is only when my life becomes over-scheduled that something unexpected can tip the apple cart. I’d rather have time and white space for chaotic endeavours to happen. After all who knows when that white rabbit with the pocket watch may run by or something equally unlikely and compelling.
