Food For Thought

I suppose most of us spend a certain amount of our consciousness inside our own heads. I know I do, and sometimes I seem to get stuck there and the outside world becomes as blurry and remote as a half-remembered dream. I don’t know why this happens to me. It could be physical, brought on by high blood pressure, lack of sleep, or an iron deficiency; or if it’s psychological and caused by stress, unfamiliarity, or too many things going on at once.
