I didn't listen to the radio or podcasts on the way home. I tried to empty my mind of the nearly constant stream of blather running through it, to find some quiet and stillness, and I can't do that with a soundtrack of talk or music right now. Clarity is the goal, but that is some time off; for now I just want to calm things down. The regularity and predictability of traffic today was an odd help, requiring low levels of nearly constant attention, allowing me to gently concentrate on it rather than the random noise in my head.
