From People on Psychedelics
Caroline Thompson is an American novelist, screenwriter, film director and producer.
- "And the other thing was I discovered LSD, and that somehow made everything make sense for me, where the world is a much stranger place than we know. And going on those drug journeys, which I did a lot, really just opened it up and made me happy in how weird the world was, as opposed to afraid of how weird it is. I think fear is the thing that keeps people so tight. Self-consciousness and fear. So I didn't have the self-consciousness of being separated as a 'brainiac' and somehow I got over my fear of the surreality of the planet. I loved taking LSD, but I don't have any urge now; I think I'm too old. I couldn't surrender the way I could when I was a teenager, and I got it at just the right time in my life." http://talentdevelop.com/drugs.html
