IMAGINATIVE CONCEPTS Blurry thoughts render vague, rambling words. You know the feeling you want to convey. Language, though, offers no way of translating it. True, pictures speak a thousand words. Draw a diagram. Speak in parable. Use verbal imagery to paint a palette of feelings. With a groggy sense of still being asleep, you seek to talk in a supposedly awake world. Take your time. Definitely make notes. Stay in sequence. Strive to maintain focus as you simultaneously try to speak and think.
