Are Storms in You?

Ordinary Devine, painting detail

Ordinary Devine, painting detail from Visionary Art book        titled ILLUMINATIONS The Geography of the Imagination, page 86, by Steven E. Counsell, Artist/Poet

The neurons firing in a brain resemble lightning firing in a storm. Storms think and minds rain in a preamble to growth. Living in New Mexico I take delight in being in one of the most spectacular places in the nation for thunderstorms; where more people per-capita are struck by lightning than anywhere else in the country. I find this encouraging somehow. In this detail from The Ordinary divine all hell is breaking loose, ionizing the air and making everything more acutely alive. Kant said in, AESTHETIC JUDGEMENTS;

“Storms and the like when assured of our safety, are our attempts to gain access to fear.”
