Crazy is as Crazy does

What is crazy?  Is crazy taking a chance on a new way of doing things?  Is crazy stepping into a new relationship when the last relationship went so badly, is crazy simply seeing other people as simply living their experience as best as they can without wanting to “help” them do it “right?” People with …
