Benjamin, what you are describing is spot-on. Indeed, I sometimes pass on your articles (for a time) because I know that I am not in that place, mentally, to absorb what I will encounter when I read them. So I wait until my 3rd or 4th cup of “Joe” before I dare to open your articles.
Earlier reads involve checking out the click-bait offerings and seeing if there is any substance underneath. Sometimes there is. More often, not.
