The Art of Doing Nothing
We sat about this morning deciding what to do with our day.
"We could go skiing", said IG.
"What about Quad biking?" , I ventured.
"We could always do nothing", Matt responded.
We stood dumbfounded - what a profoundly brilliant idea!
So today was all about doing nothing.
You may think that this would be an easy thing to do once on holiday - but in the past we've always been sidetracked by those who feel we should always be doing something worthwhile.
Not today - Fuck no.
Those influences have been well and truly expunged. We asserted our manhood by doing absolutely nothing, and it was grand!
I wonder if what our modern (read sick) society needs, is simply more days of doing nothing. I think we could be on to something here. :)
If we could just get those who would have us do more, do less, we all might be better off.
Who am I fooling - they'd never let it happen.
