i remember someone saying at one time: "why is your life so boring?   
Have you ever tried drugs?  Why don't you ever go out? (etc.)" and I  
explained that I always was 'way out there'in myself,  I never had the  
need for drugs, when I went out it was to look at architecture.  That,  
by my living like this since childhood, having a 'boring' life was  
actually not so boring to me.
