A Quote by Jane Roberts on poetry, ration thought, magical thinking, and nuances

SETH said:  To me at least, poetry - like love - implies a magical approach to life, quite different from the presently accepted rational way of looking at the world.  That is, poetry brings out lifes little nuances.  It delights in forming correspondences between events that seem quite seperate to the intellectually-tuned consciousness alone, and reveals undercurrents of usually-concealed actions that we quite ignore when we're most concerned about thinking rationally.  Actually, that kind of vision contains its own spontaneous rationality, and often supplies us with answers more satisfying than purely intellectual ones.
