Started a new book today, Hurry Down Sunshine by Michael Greenberg...am just 67 pages into it, so beautifully written. It's a memoir written from the heart of a father who witnesses his lovely fifteen year old daughter at the moment she begins to go mad, she communicates some of her visions and thoughts to him which are quite thought provoking...
Genius is childhood. We are given it with life, and society drums it out of us before we have a chance to follow the impulses of our naturally creative souls. Einstein, Newton, Mozart, Shakespeare-not one of them was abnormal. They simply found a way to hold on to the gift everyone of us is given, like a door prize, at birth.
