A time now to regroup and re-collect what has become a scatter of energies, due to work pressure, family issues, and sleeplessness among other things. It’s not that I’m some uber-disciplined monkish person, but some regular practices like meditation and guitar practice, carried out whether I feel like it or not, helps create a core of stability (or at least the illusion of one) which gives me energy to do the rest of what I have to do.
