To quote my 18 year old self:
“If you’re not a little bit crazy, there’s something wrong with you.”
I’m not talking about mental illness, which is a serious ailment that needs to be treated as earnestly as any disease of the body.
No, I’m just talking about those who colour outside the lines, dance to a different beat, think outside the box, etc.The definition of the word crazy differs from every person’s perspective, but also in the context it is used.
In respect to artists, I think what’s important is to not allow that freedom of thought to escape you and keep the creativity flowing even if it’s not that good, or not commercial enough to sell, or looked upon as crazy. We are so hung up on money, that we’ve closed our colourful spectrum of imagination for fear that we will be seen as too abnormal.
Go crazy and let your mind soar!
