"One must have chaos in oneself, to give birth to a dancing star". ~Friedrich Nietzsche
The brilliance embodied within my children has now been explained. I always wondered how I managed to give birth to astoundingly intelligent and amazingly talented kids. (I'm not biased. Ask anyone who has met them.) It seems my never-ending chaos does, indeed, have a purpose.
(Yes, I am aware I've taken the whole quote out of context. I like it this way. Leave me be.)
