When the lights are low and it is quiet, the brain is filled with thoughts, imagination, ideas, and remembrances.

Is it just to be mad?

No not insane, or even frantic, though the thoughts can be disturbing or create a flood of ideas. Words can have new meanings; creations flood the senses translating to the body a nervous feeling.

This is not like “Mad” magazine, which I grew up with. Back then it was mad to think that our madcap leaders had created and were ready to use weapons of self-annihilation.

Some of the greatest artist, writers, poets, and musicians have been certifiably mad, but we view their work with awe and wonder. What did they see and feel that we cannot?

Have we lost our since of madness?

So everyday, set some time aside to be mad. Not angry, just mad.

Release the mind to wander places only a few express without reluctance to the society norm.
