A slight brush of mania

It has always been said, that artists of all types are slightly queer…a little bit mad.

I don’t think that it’s about being crazy…I mean, artists do see things differently. they are with deeper views of the universe and their own world.

It is having a special vision that makes them care less about what ordinary people strive to attain. and care more about matters that seem trivial or of no sense to the majority.


I’ve been around artists all my life. Musicians, writers and painters. non was ordinary in comparison with the everyday corporate employee who thinks and lives a routine of repetitive incidents.

Artists have mood swings, Impulsive enthusiasms and sudden depressions.

What I’ve noticed as well is that no matter what kind of artist or how goodآ you are…If you have a special talent you tend to think, act and feelآ things differently.


Some are so private…as if their own minds hold a universe that revolves exclusively andآ people, life and society become more of a visualized manifestation ofآ how silly the world is.

Some are exchanging universal knowledge and they would let their thoughts andآ art out…expressive they are…loud and articulate.


I believe that every human beingآ has some kind of talent inside of him…either hidden somewhereآ or crystal clear…either acknowledged by the talented himself or left to rust and decay by his own hands willingly or by others’ influence.


It takesآ spirit and inner clarity for people to courageously allow themselves to interact with the talent seeded in them.


Just like it takesآ some kind of superiority to allow art to flow from you…to accept speciality and it’s very own brush of mania.


Many artists and scientists were called mad…check out this article: Mad/ Geniusآ 


My favorite exampleآ ( because i love his poems ) is Edgar Allan Poe and he said:


Men have called me mad; but the question is not yet settled, whether madness is or is not the loftiest intelligence — whether much that is glorious — whether all that is profound — does not spring from disease of thought — from moods of mind exalted at the expense of the general intellect”
