“I am so clever that sometimes I don’t understand a single word of what I am saying.” –Oscar Wilde
I took some time off this week and went to the city, choosing to make this journey technology free. I didn’t even pop into one internet cafe. It was an opportunity to write, read, and rest while being ‘chauffered’. Each direction entails a 45 minute ferry trip followed by a 45 minute bus trip and, this time of year, there’s no returning until evening. But that’s okay because often one day seems not enough to truly enjoy without feeling a bit frenetic and hurried. Islanders are blessed to receive a discount at a heart of the city hotel, making it hard to resist an overnight stay. I also have wonderful in-laws that have housed me for a night or two on many occasions.
