Youth and Madness

Everybody’s youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness. How pleasant then to be insane!

— F. Scott Fitzgerald.

When I look back at my teenage and the decade that was my twenties, I wonder if I was really insane. Things I did, thought, and said; people I loved, disliked, insulted; places I visited, stayed, and went back to — nothing short of crazy. But it was fun.
