The thing I enjoy most about flying is that for the most part its uninterrupted time.
Or rather, time spent without the Internet and various other electronic gadgets. Although I hear this is changing, and I reckon soon I’ll probably become a luddite flyer, with just a book in hand. Oh well, I’m okay with that.
On one of my flights yesterday I had the pleasure of sitting and reading for an entire hour. It was bliss.
I read this article in Vanity Fair about the Large Hadron Collider. Maybe the Boy and his profession talk have leaked over to me, or I’ve been watching too much of The Big Bang Theory, but I was totally fascinated not only by this article, but the machine itself, and also how bloody cool it looks as an art piece. If you have some time, it’s worth a read.
I usually don’t make goals/resolutions for each new year, but I think I might break my own trend and make this the year I try to read something outside my own comfort zone at least once a day.
