Headspace

FIFA is playing downstairs on the PS 1. I need distraction sometimes. Leisure has such bad connotations for me. I see well to do English chaps playing badminton.

Quite a tightrope. Labor and leisure.

Looking at independent secondary schools for a teaching gig. I like teaching all in all. I need headspace for writing poetry. Perhaps headspace is more important than physical time.

Telemarketing did not create headspace. All I wrote about was telemarketing and the numb mind.

The numb may be good

for some

but as for me

I need a mind

unstuck in time.
