The simple pleasures

It has been a fairly hectic few months, and between work, Cymraeg classes, scout leading, walks and all sorts of other things I have and haven't written about, I haven't spent a lot of time doing nothing. (Point for comment: is this a double negative?)

Last night, I did something I haven't done for a while. I put on some music and read the newspapers (Western Mail, Evening Post and Independent, if anyone is interested). Once I finished reading the newspapers, I played card games. This may not sound exciting. Indeed, it isn't. But it has been a while since I have just sat, listened to music and done little else. I do enjoy being able to do very little on occasions.

Indeed, while I listen to my ipod while walking to work daily, it is not quite the same. The simple pleasures. The simple past times. Sometimes it is worth taking time out and just doing nothing.


I agree Alex, sometimes doing nothing and emptying my brain can be almost Cartharthic (if thats how you spell it!) like a meditative process. I've been reading your blog in bed on a bank holiday at a time I would normally have been up for a couple of hours already. Does that constitutes'doing nothing'? Glad you enjoyed the Margam walk.

Insert comments

Please feel free to comment. I value dialogue and want other people's involvement. Please put your email address in. I will publish pretty much any comment which is made, but if you do not give your email address, I reserve the right not to publish your comment. I will not pass on or publish an email address (unless you specifically ask me to), but I may want to verify details, and cannot do this without an email address. Besides, its polite. Also, feel free to put in html tags. If you don't, I will stick them in, but I will just stick in simple ones. If you want anything more, you'll have to do it yourself.
