Simply staring out the window

  Stumbling round the web today, I happened upon a New York Times article that was talking about how our brains work. The whole thing is worth reading, so I’ll link to it here: Hit the Reset Button in Your Brain However, you don’t need to read the whole thing to get what I thought… Continue reading Simply staring out the window

quirky cafés and tea shops in London?

Need your help. Please. Pretty please. Tried this on my Teablog, and only got one tip. I’m in London this weekend, which means there’ll be tea drinking and idling in an entirely new country.

So many things I wanted to accomplish this weekend, and yet something in me rebelled. It was as if my brain raised a flag of surrender and said, ‘Enough.’ Rather than power through… Continue reading idler and idler
