Is there anything more beautiful than a handsomely typed page?
Well put. It's true that the more stimuli we attend to, the more harried and hurried our time becomes. I also think we get addicted to that hurry. It provides a certain excitement and distracts us from the discomfort or emptiness we feel when we aren't racing on to the next thing.Maybe we can learn something from the aristocrats. In the fine BBC series "Downton Abbey," a duchess utters the shocked and contemptuous words, "What is a 'week-end'?"
We are in the process of slowing down and uncluttering our minds. Retirement is a positive thing.
Thank you for this post.
Ha, I like that 'week-end' quote. I'm gonna drop that into regular conversation. Like when I bought the book 'How to be Idle' - my wife said: What, you need a book to tell *you* how to be idle?But seriously, better minds and better outlook benefits everyone.
