If at first an idea is not absurd, there is no hope for it.
- Albert Einstein (via underpaidgenius)
I hope he really said this. My wife never understands why I start from the absurd, or why I go quickly to the absurd. There is very productive, fruitful terrain for creative ideas in the absurd. The unexpected, unanticipated, oftimes unacceptable, take root in the areas of the absurd. The absurd is my garden, my farm, my Amazon jungle.
