I have often said, ‘There is a thin line between brilliance and insanity.’ I have lived my entire life in the vicinity of that line. I have come close to it several times. In those times I feel like I’m on the brink. My thought patterns begin to alter. I start, just for a moment, to see the entire world differently. It’s beautiful. Those moments are so brief that I scarcely have time to complete a thought. I step back from the line afraid to cross it. I wonder what it is like on the other side. I wonder if I will ever cross over into brilliance.
