How to be Idle

Found a book my sister gave to me (Thanks Sherry D). Has to be one of my all time favorites, here is a quick quote from the book. I hope you are all idle today!

 " When fishing for long periods, then, the intellect vanishes; rationality and even language are abandoned. One starts to flow, to float. And we think of John Lennon in 'Tomorrow Never Knows', the well-known Beatles fishing song, where he counsels floating downstream and turning off your mind.

Angling is a form of meditation, an out-of-body, out-of-mind experience. But sooner or later the angler must return to the world."

Tom Hodgkinson, How to be Idle.
