On "Well-Adjusted People"

Who will speak for the well-adjusted people? They do not, after all, trouble themselves with painting, writing, music, or other creative endeavors. They do not run for high office; they do not show up on stage or screen. They lack the traces of grit from which others must try to fashion pearls.

How can their histories be traced? Who can claim to understand their ways?

Not that it bothers them; but their elusiveness bothers me.
