Essays on idleness
I came across this book recently - it's like a mediaeval Japanese blog. There are plenty of little gems within the pages but perhaps we should take delight in the art of idleness ourselves. Idleness is not being lazy, it's about cultivating space in our lives to do nothing. We observe time passing, we feel our moods, we find still places in our mind. These are not trivial things. After all, nothing really happens to anyone - as the book suggests. True wealth is watching time pass, not letting it slip by unnoticed. Explore idleness, explore the joy in being idle.
