Social calisthenics

Often enough, when work does not afford me a great budget of time or money for complex social engagements, I pay instead for the privilege of sitting at a public eatery or watering hole. There I do my work, while indulging in the sounds of a crowd.

I like crowds. Crowds are comforting. They make me feel a lot more normal. Sometimes, I wonder if I will grow mad, before I grow wise.

Every day since moving to the countryside, however, I am thankful to have no dangerous noises such as my mother nearby. A neutral environment is far better than a costly one.
