Thank you for responding, Alex. I agree with a lot of what you mention. These are certainly lofty questions that many living day-to-day don’t get the chance to ponder — at least not on such a large platform. But they are as you say important to consider.

What seems to be absent is the word “happy” or “happiness” — which may be a good thing. In as much as people might think him absolutely out there and completely lost.

He sounds at peace, though, and if not happy then simply content with his current station.

We never really know the private struggles people face. And we all have our demons. Hopefully, though we enjoy our lives despite them.
