Since I work in software development and make a hobby of writing, my coworkers sometimes ask me how I stay sane. I tell them, "I'm not actually sane. I'm just high-functioning."
An excerpt from an excellent TED presentation that a friend (Maestro Patrick Summers of HGO) shared with me a couple of years ago. Especially apropos in light of so many comments I've read following today's news of the death of Amy Winehouse. "Creative people across all genres...have this reputation for being enormously mentally unstable."
