Moments of intuition

"During [these] periods of relaxation after concentrated intellectual activity, the intuitive mind seems to take over and can produce the sudden clarifying insights which give so much joy and delight."
Fritjof Capra

This is the balance, the immersion, the moments of clarification after the mind has been puzzling for so long on an issue. For this reason the evenings are always for my-self; for reading, reflection, private time. Mornings and afternoons are for work. Is this a luxury? Does this mean I'm not being worked hard enough?

I don't care. I didn't come here to write some words and look clever. That's the duty of real scholars. I'm just part-time, and passing through.
