The following writings and articles originated in a book I started in my late teens called "For Madmen Only", a collection of thoughts I wished to remember, added to during my moments of clarity, to be read when I was lost amongst the trees. We all have a touch of madness - Steppenwolf was not alone.
These thoughts are what works for me. Try them on for size. If they work
for you, then I am blessed.
