Negative Capability

Are you familiar with the term Negative Capability?  I know, sounds negative, doesn't it?  But it's not. Here's how Keats defined it:

when a man is capable of being in uncertainties, mysteries, doubts, without any irritable reaching after fact and reason...with a great poet the sense of Beauty overcomes every other consideration, or rather obliterates all consideration.
We've been thinking a lot about Negative Capability over here at The Squirrel King, usually emphasizing it's exhortation to find beauty in the mysterious, and I wanted to remind you of some of the beautifully mysterious images we've shared over the years:
