I guess the short answer is that I am writing this to memorialize various details of my journey somewhere so I can get it all out of my head—I really need to free up some much needed mental real estate.

If you read very many posts here, you will see why this is necessary.

I have a deeply introspective and ruminating mind—a mind that runs on overdrive. I don’t know why, but even in its resting state, the circuitry in my mind hums and crackles like high-voltage lines. Immersing myself in projects like writing, video production, web design, and graphic layout is very therapeutic for me.

I guess you could say creativity dials down the frequency—reducing the electrical hum to tolerable levels, so to speak. In some analogous way, it harnesses all that alternating current and makes it direct.
