From Where Eccentrics Come

Since I was a young boy, many people saw me as funny, a bit odd and laughable, eccentric. I’ve occasionally been asked : “Which planet do you come from?” I laughed, as it was true; I must have come from someplace else as I didn’t think the way they did.

However, it was a bit confusing, why they thought I came from a different planet. As I was fortunate to be happy much of the time (and, if not, soon enough), it should have been clear I didn’t come from a another planet. I came from heaven.

They too came from heaven, but forgot they did.
