Splash du Jour: Thursday

I want to say, in all seriousness, that a great deal of harm is being done in the modern world by belief in the virtuousness of work, and that the road to happiness and prosperity lies in an organized diminution of work.
…The morality of work is the morality of slaves, and the modern world has no need of slavery.

-- Bertrand Russell, In Praise Of Idleness

Have a great Thursday!

That is awesome, May.
As for me, I have some wooden balcony furniture just as shown in the picture, but NO TIME ever to put my feet up on it!

Ciprianus, I do not have time to put my feet up on my plastic balcony furniture either. I spend most of my free time either sleeping or shopping (sometimes writing and reading).
