The Mad Ones...

Quick intermission from my "origins" series. A post at Adele's blog reminded me of one of my favorite quotes:

“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, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars and in the middle you see the blue centerlight pop and everybody goes "Awww!”

- Jack Keroac

That's exactly how I feel. Which is sometimes overwhelming to my lovely introverted wife (who is both mad and brilliant, but internalizes it)... she thinks my emotional swings are slightly ridiculous. Which they very well may be. But I am mad. And I like to burn, burn, burn...
