The realm of fairy-story is wide and deep and high and filled with many things: shoreless seas and stars uncounted, beauty that is an enchantment, and an ever-present peril; both joy and sorrow as sharp as swords.
Tolkien, On Fairy-Stories

Every day I discover more and more beautiful things. It’s enough to drive one mad. I have such a desire to do everything, my head is bursting with it.

hideback:

Charles Altamont Doyle (English, 1832 – 1893)
Saint Giles: Residual ghosts evoked by bells at the cathedral in Edinburgh
The father of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Charles Doyle was plagued by depression and alcoholism throughout his life. He was committed to a mental asylum in 1881. He was miserable and longed for his freedom. He planned a violent escape but was re-captured. Then Doyle created intricate paintings of fairies to try to prove his sanity.
Nothing worked, and he died in the asylum in 1893. Are these paintings the work of an insane man?
