Hi Jon, i enjoyed your story, I’m a 62 year old man that have had moments of weirdness in my life because of creative undertakings. When I’m in the middle of a really passionate creative process, I find it to be so overwhelming and overpowering to my senses and intellect I just become a really weird strange guy, you know, in a good way, but hard for other people to understand that have never “been there”.
That’s when I need to stop, calm down, step back for awhile, regain my(self)again. And just be normal boring me.
I enjoy the weirdness, but it’s hard to sustain
Thanks for your story, hope mine makes sense.
