A Sacred Idle
There's a book this summer from Tom Hodgkinson called "How To Be Idle."

Let me tell you from experience I know that it takes it takes a lot of work to perfect a sacred idle. It is part of the reason I am so fond of 19th century Romantic poets. They always took the time to write what was on their minds. Every time I reread these favorite bards of mine I have to marvel at how much time it must have taken to compose their wonderful thoughts.

Anyhow, next time I am rushing to catch a flight I will surely look for "How To Be Idle" if only to remind me of why I am rushing around in the first place.
