Flying the Coop

Another chapter, a new adventure…

You’re only given a little spark of madness.

We had an open mic night at my coffee house for poetry and musical performances. Someone read a poem about Robin Williams and now I’m missing him again. Everyone misses him, though. I thought what he said about being crazy… he said, “You’ve got to be crazy! It’s too late to be sane. […] Because you’re only given a little spark of madness. If you lose that, you’re nothing.”

I don’t know why, but that quote, that piece of advice… it keeps rattling around in my head.

It makes a lot of sense. You can’t be too serious in this life. You have to embrace the crazy… embrace the nonsense. Things don’t make sense. The only thing that does make sense is laughter. Laughter shared with friends.

Hold on to that madness.
