It's true, I am stoned just like Zonker in the comic strip Doonesbury.
I've made the same mistakes as Zonker. I believed the summer of love would last forever. But eventually both Zonker and I were mugged by reality. Zonker was forced to go to work in a fast food restaurant and I become a perpetual student.
Sometimes I eat in Zonker's fast food restaurant and we look at each other with sad eyes while the jukebox plays, "You can get anything you want in Alice's restaurant".
For me, it doesn't matter whoever it is that I'm reading. It all sounds like me.
Even when we have lost hope in resolving the problems we have, we are still fundamentally part and parcel of the world. By virtue of this understanding, we can do anything realisable within the universe. [So don't give up ]
If you don't like the way this universe is - go somewhere else!" - Richard Feynman
