Absurd, or...?

"If at first, the idea is not absurd, there is no hope for it." ~Albert Einstein
 Ever had a creative urge, an idea, or just a passing thought that seemed so outrageous that you never took it seriously?  Did you think, "Oh, I could never pull it off", or "What would people think if I pursued that?", or "Maybe later...".  

Ever regret not pursuing one of those "crazy" dreams?

As I look at my own journey - where I've been, where I am, where I want to be - I've begun to wonder if my life is lacking a good dose of absurdity.  It's too easy to get bogged down in minutiae and day-to-day mundane tasks.  Couldn't we all use a trip to the wild side more often?

How do we recapture a little crazy when the world teaches safe conformity?
