Time for Boredom?

I love Lucy Mangan, a writer for the Guardian Newspaper. Click here for her amusing observations on boredom in today’s newspaper.

Reading her article prompted this post. Do you remember long days of school summer holidays when nothing much ever happened? Do you allow yourself periods of inactivity now and again, time when your imagination has nothing to do but run riot. No gadgets, no machines, no TV or radio? Or is your life usually filled with some activity?

Just for an hour, or even 30 minutes, try switching off this week end. Literally switching off – and see if you can recharge your battery by doing nothing at all. That’s green!

    Monotony is good! Too much excitement leads to violence.

      I’m not sure I take your meaning, Lou. There are lots of reasons why violence erupts,; it’s a complicated issue. But thanks for commenting! Jane
