We plea temporary, alcohol-induced madness for the span of this weekend and half last weekend.
You can plead like that, but insofar as you are sane, you have a duty to preserve and expand that sanity.
But what about courting a little crazy for the sake of new artistic angles, or just to escape the pressure of the day-to-day? Don’t we all benefit from sanity breaks?
Maybe, but you are going to have to pursue other, safer departures from standard consciousness. You could meditate, pray, freewrite, exercise.
