ever so slightly mad

Words

Something I just discovered:

If I don't talk -- or write blog posts, or compose email, or do SOMEthing to verbally express myself, which is to say, if I spend all day sitting in my office diddling with the computer in a way that doesn't involve language generation -- my brain gets all clogged up and I can't think properly.

I just went for a walk and blathered on to myself about what next steps I should take in my current project, and it felt like working a muscle that has gone stiff from underuse. And now I feel about a thousand times more focused.
