Will Hall brought to my attention an article called “A Find Madness: Sanity and Creativity” that has some good stories that illustrate the need to go to a dangerous edge, to take risks, if one is truly to be creative. And it also seemed to illustrate the need to accept failure at times in order to avoid going over the edge – sometimes the need was simply to accept that others could not see one’s success, even though it was indeed a success. (I think lots of us have experienced having some great insight that we just couldn’t share, because others weren’t ready for it. It comes with the territory of being creative – a trick is learning how to accept that this will happen.)
