I can’t say that I’ve lived a similar life to Howard W. Campbell Jr.

But I sure can relate to how he views certain aspects of life.

“It’s all I’ve seen, all I’ve been through,” I said, “that makes it damn nearly impossible for me to say anything. I’ve lost the knack of making sense. I speak gibberish to the civilized world, and it replies in kind.”
(Howard W. Campbell Jr. from Mother Night by Kurt Vonnegut)
