"My waking, working life, like my dream life, can sometimes feel like a series of epiphanies that are just beyond my reach — nonsensical symbols that I can't read and invisible objects that I can't see. I still dont know where ideas come from, but I now seem to at least know something about my own methods for finding them, which I keep holding on to even as the realities of my professional and personal life evolve. I read around and talk to colleagues, trying to keep a steady flow of new ideas in my daily work. Honestly, the homework never stops, it just isn't graded."
