Verbal self

When I am both sleep-deprived and stressed out, it's hard to hold onto that fine pencil-point of refined verbal communication. I can tell I'm off-balance.

Last week, the joint IB-MCB* speaker made a thoughtful remark about the importance of having downtime to process ideas and experiment progress. This was her argument against labs that encourage a culture of constant work. She's correct.

In theory that's the point of hobbies.
In practice, bike or boat racing doesn't tend to be as meditative as all that.

Yeah, not especially meditative, but still definitely a contributor towards long-term sanity.
