My inner madness consists of my impulsive energy, my obsessions with music and the beauty of nature and the wisdom of books. It is my yearning to move, travel, dance, love, laugh, cry and write. I call this madness because this is not what we are encouraged to explore. This is the juxtaposition of normality, or sanity. It’s my colorful crazy, my flailing armed creativity, my smiling inner peace, my madness is my genius.
Jack Kerouac once stated: “The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing.”
I’m with you Jack. I am drawn to the unexpected and the unusual, I love the odd and the bizarre. If you think you’re weird, I’ll most definitely want to talk to you…all night. We can talk about anything you want…let’s inspire each other and expand our hearts and minds..
My inner crazy feels uncomfortable with the boredom of small talk and commonplace things.
I want to know what makes your heart come alive.
I want to know what drives your desires and makes your soul sing. I want to lie under the stars and imagine other worlds. I can’t understand when you tell me how much you earn or what you want to buy, but I want to listen when you tell me what you want from life and what you want to see and how much you want to give of your crazy self to the world.

the river-wild spaciousness of soul retrieval requires an immensity of heart, a fire to match the flood, and a fearless, stripped-down deliciousness of being…..
I disregard the proportions, the measures, the tempo of the ordinary world. I refuse to live in the ordinary world as ordinary women. To enter ordinary relationships. I want ecstasy. I am a neurotic — in the sense that I live in my world. I will not adjust myself to the world…..Anais Nin
Better than any argument is to rise at dawn
and pick dew-wet red berries in a cup.
