Observation…

It occurred to me during a recent email exchange with a person that I would describe as blazingly intelligent, that every such person I have ever known has had a somewhat tenuous relationship with their mental health. It seems to make sense to me, now that I think about it - that kind of incisive intelligence causes some things to be glaringly apparent to that person, but those same things seem to escape the notice of most of the rest of the population. Of course they’re depressed! They can’t help seeing how fubar things really are…
