ordinary things

24 May

I know we have a lot of leisure time as we don’t need to grow our own food or hunt game for our meat to survive, anymore.

So what do we do with this time?

We invent new gadgets to play with. Like
google glass

We eat out like james pembroke

We kill each other. (no need to provide a link because news of this is everywhere).

We work. That has replaced leisure time, for some people and they will be bereft if they don’t have that because it fills their time, as well as give them money, which they think provides them with future security to retire and have time to do whatever they like, which they will find is to get back to work. Haha.

We do extreme sports and workouts. Some of us anyway. extreme outdoor gym

There are other ways which I wont bother to enumerate.

What I would like to know is what is there for me to do?

I could visit museums and art galleries, in fact just across the street is the tate Britain and they have done a complete new re-hang of all their art works. So I guess it is worth a look. I have not been in there yet.

In the end, I find books gives me more variety than anything I can visit or go to.

But it is not good to be too fixated on one thing only. Books are the only things that I find I like to do that does not bore me because there is infinite variety in that one blanket term ’books’.

Sex is another.
What else???

Seeing films I suppose could be another.

Some might say travel. And in the past I would agree, but nowadays I seem to have lost all appetite for that.

Some have gone on long stays in another country, and in a way, I suppose I am doing that, living in uk, which is not my country of origin. Though I have lived so long here that I count myself a native now. And I don’t notice the quirks of this society , considering them to be normal instead and not worthy of writing about. I guess if I have been newer to this country, I could be noting down the funny habits of the English.

Another way to while away the time is to observe human nature and all its variety. But I guess I get impatient with the senselessness of it, some of the things that humans do are so stupid that I have lost patience with seeing it. And just want to forget them.

I sound like a jaded old man, perhaps I am.

So for now, I guess I shall have to be content with pottering around my part of London, minding my own business, (though there is no business as such, it is just a saying) and trying to glean as much enjoyment doing ordinary things out of it. See the beauty in ordinary things and smell the flowers. I am grateful to be able to do that without any worries, financial or otherwise. That is something to be really grateful for when all is said and done.
