I do like the unfamiliar early-day stroll. Occasionally in New York. Elsewhere before polo action. And then the overseas version. Slipping out whilst the others grogg and slog under the covers and grasp for pillows as the sun breaks. It’s quiet before the day’s engine roars into action.

Another talk at MIT tonight. I wasn’t fully gripped at either, but the important thing is it unsticks my mind from the day. In a similar way, I was reading David Graeber’s “Debt: The First 5000 Years” and noticed that while it was a bit difficult to get through, I was having downright fantastic daydreams and other thoughts during my time with it.

The lesson is, I think, that getting out of the house is always positive. That consumption doesn’t necessarily have to be of the intended product. My experience is my own and not anyone else’s in the audience (unless it’s a very well done piece of commercial entertainment). And now I’ve got Graeber’s tome on audiobook, and it’s a joy indeed.

Rambling night, before another clear morning.
