The line between creativity and insanity
Lines are part of us. Lines are the description of being a human. We met lines so long ago. When a human wants to create a place of loneliness, that human can easily draw a line to show it to the others. There are two kinds of lines;
1St Is visible
2ND Is invisible.
The first line we draw is the one of our own self-spaciously. A little circle covers our bodies when we don’t want someone to reach us. We can make it grow and grow until it includes countries and those lines guarding by soldiers.
Invisible lines we draw. If we like someone, that person can cross the line and maybe reaches the deepest fear of humankind: living without a line.
That’s the time when they call you crazy. If you stop drawing lines you must be crazy! Otherwise, you can’t be normal. You need to draw at least one line between you and yourself awareness.
As creative people most of the people around us, calling us crazy, but why?
The line between creativity and insanity is quite thin. If you want to be creative, you need to create a new perception. You should know the line is elastic and you can play with it.
It’s like time travel: two realities at the same time. You should be able to visit the other side time to time.
It’s easy to find an idea by researching and a little spark, but as creative people, our aim must be to find the idea, which changes human behaviour.
You need to know how to play with the line and please don’t be afraid of being crazy. Don’t give a fuck about what other people think. These are enforced truths designated by society. As a creative, it’s your duty to break the rules. If you can’t, you will never get the satisfaction of creation.
So, how to play with the line?
Take the line and turn it into a guitar string, sing with it in the middle of the street, share it with other people, play skipping rope. Take it and turn it into a sound, a music, something inspiring. Take it and turn it into a mountain that you can reach to the top of it and see the world above.
