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.
