No Hard Feelings

29 May ’06

For about a month now, I’ve begun leaving the Treo behind when I leave the office. For now, during selected absences only. But still, I’m serious about exploring whether or not the difference I’ve come to assume it makes is real, or just a defensive justification for carrying around a neat toy. And today, I discovered that Adam Bryant is on the same quest. But with much better prose. “But you gave me something to do in idle moments, while I was standing in line or waiting for a train. With you, there was no dead time. It seemed great for a while. Living without you, though, there’s more time to think. Daydreaming is an underappreciated pastime, and I’ve been doing more of it since we broke up, often to good effect. The idea percolator works better with fewer distractions.” Yes, it really does.
