I would like to share with you some experiences from the life of a man I used to know, a fellow named Cal Connors. Since Cal does not fall into a category that’s popularly thought worthy of biographical coverage—star athlete, business magnate, media celebrity—I should explain why I think his account deserves your attention.
First let me address those of you who have experienced any sort of identity crisis along the course of your lives. If you have tried to make sense of that turmoil after the fact, Cal’s story will speak directly to you. Not that you are likely to have resorted to his peculiar manner of coping with events, because he went to a rather bizarre extreme. However, extremes are useful to observe for the very reason that elements of a situation which are usually more subtle and obscure stand out in clearer relief.
