Are Storms in You?

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.”
