My dear,

Look around. What’s the normal around you? Are the people who are normal the ones who are truly happy? The ones who are changing the world? Bettering the world? Or are they slowly moving down in unhappiness levels? Slowly withering away? Getting worse?

The trouble with normal is it always gets worse.

Now look at the weird ones. The crazies. The abnormals.

Don’t they look much happier. Doesn’t the static-like air about them just exude change and madness?

Why don’t you join them?

Falsely yours,
Bruce Douglas Cockburn
