Are Storms in You?

odd3blogdetail from THE ORDINARY DEVINE, painting on page 188 in art book ILUMINATIONS The Geography of the Imagination 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.”
