« Gap fortnight | Main | Let it rest »

It's 8 years since I jacked in paid work and I still feel faintly guilty about dossing about, even though I give several days a week to voluntary work and self-improvement. The protestant work ethic has a lot to answer for.


Protestantism mostly took off in cold climates where you can't sit outside in the piazza chatting to your mates for what's left of your life. It's easier to doss by the Mediterranean.
