On Structure and Genius

A 24-year old named Mallory who is dating my son Andrew boasted in complaint form that her family is more structured than ours. My thoughts on that:

Anyone can enforce or obey structure, even the convict or those with mental illness. The genius though, takes inspiration, and creates structure, simplicity and beauty where non existed. I’d rather be a genius.—Robert John Stevens, July 30, 2017
