Insane, crazy or mad; it all sounds like someone who doesn’t fit within the village.  That’s the point of my journey.  I don’t fit.  Thus, I am crazy.  Oliver tries to find a fit, yet comes up empty.  So, he believes he is crazy, mad, insane.

No one truly feels a part of the village.  So, tell me, who is crazy and who is a part of the village.

      Greetings.

      Memory is a strange thing. Mine started at age thirty and was built upon the kindness of strangers. Yours I see, while short term, has myriad variations. There is a part of myself that wishes my search had spread farther than the inner journey I pursued. I travel now. Maybe the pieces will converge allowing clarity.

      If only I played an instrument I too might busker and watch the world around affected or disinclined by my intensions.
