This reminds me of balancing right brain activities with left brain activities. I remember reading something about Einstein enhancing his reasoning by playing violin, Churchill painting landscapes or Feynman playing the drums.I tried to relocate the article but my google-fu failed me. I did managed to find this article on music tho: Einstein was smart, but Could He Play the Violin?:)
Yeah, I know Einstein played the violin, I thought he was reasonably good. By the way, for me personally music is the thing too. I have always sensed it somehow created not only a counterbalance but also an inspiration to my more analytic activities.
