Observe carefully what guides the actions of the wise, and what they shun or seek.
Marcus Aurelius Meditations Book iv, #38
Big question was whether I should wear shorts and pack my ubiquitous “summer style” for this trip, or, at the last minute, I changed up the luggage. I packed a bag before I left for London, figuring it would just be easier. Should’ve known I’d have to repack. The name comes from some time past, as I’ve been on this road for a while.
Early on, I was working in a little town in West Texas, and I had on the usual boots, jeans, yoke shirt, sport jacket. Et cetera. Side note, Brooks & Dunn played the local arena that night. Halfway through a relatively slow show, I was uncomfortable, so I slipped my boots off, Tony Lama boots at the time. Felt better being barefoot. The promoter noticed.
That was long before I learned that studies have proven we work better barefoot. Not that it matters.
While the thermometer might read in the 70s, the high desert air still has a winter chill. Not barefoot now.
Reading is untidy, discursive and perpetually inviting.
