Protecting Sight #318: “Let the paint dry.” Controlling surgical mindset. Write as well as you can.

Welcome to my daily learning journal. Here is today’s list:

1. Ted Talk – Daniel J. Watts: “Let the paint dry” — a lesson in creativity, career and patience. “As theaters closed in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, the creatives who populated their stages were plunged into a state of seemingly endless uncertainty. Aided by a delightful and metaphorically resonant piece of performance art, multidisciplinary artist Daniel J. Watts shares a personal perspective on reframing this moment of global stasis as an opportunity to reset and reflect on the potential of what comes after.” (

Inspirational storyteller.

2. Cataract Surgery – Uday Devgan MD – 1086: Do you get nervous or anxious?
