Daily Thoughts 04/29/2019

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I read some more of How to Do Nothing.  I am reading about communes and dropping out from society.  The author describes Epicurus's school for leading the good leaf.  Jenny Odell also comments on Walden Two by B.F. Skinner.  In the end she refutes the idea of dropping out from society.  She even includes some commentary on Thomas Merton.
