Idleness is the backdrop, the warm embrace to which everyone sinks back in the end.
Five days left to listen to Oliver Burkeman’s BBC Radio documentary about the joys of idleness. A particular joy is listening to a young boy talk about his “ideal island”. Nice appearances from Tom Hodgkinson and Bagpuss too.
(Thanks to Richard S. for putting me onto this.)
