Essential Insanities by catch---22 Essential Insanities by catch---22
There are essential and inessential insanities. The latter are solar in character, the former are linked to the moon. Inessential insanities are a brittle amalgamation of ambition, aggression, and pre-adolescent anxiety - garbage that should have been dumped long ago. Essential insanities are those impulses one instinctively senses are virtuous and correct, even though peers may regard them as coo-coo. Inessential insanities get one in trouble with one's self. Essential insanities get one in trouble with others. In fact, it may be essential. Poetry, the best of it, is lunar and is concerned with the essential insanities....

~Tom Robbins

the Essential Insanities have always carried a most potent attraction for me. I suppose the good news is... with the moon they are but a whisper away.


----------

my moon (the first full one of August) and this texture [link] modified just a bit.

now on to some more of those essential insanities to see what you've posted in my absence. :peace:

This is so antique, so simple, yet so complex. It really speaks to me, but I have no accurate words to express how lovely it is. Timeless. :)

~~ I know this moon. I have seen it rise and kiss the trees of the Ozarks. I have seen it in the morning as the sun causes the mists to rise from the fields around my home and sweetly join it in the horizon. It whispers in the night with a song of such brightness and light that even the deer and the other wildlife come out to listen. you have captured truly the moon I know. Thank you for you wonderful shot. I would love to write a piece about it if you would not mind. You are also now featured under Artists That Move Me. WONDERFUL! It reminds me of this piece I wrote. [link] Thank you again for such a wonderful combination of skills.

always,
katti
