Two thoughts to cap off the night.
1. The pursuit of truly knowing something should ideally begin with a blank slate. Of course, there are established values, beliefs and preferences that will somehow predetermine the outcome. However, there’s also the ability to put things in perspective. To bend without breaking. To make a little room for something possibly good.
2. It’s actually nice to work on a holiday. I can wake up a little late and not have to wait an hour for the train. It’s much more peaceful. Although we don’t get a double-pay, I never complain about getting up to work when everybody else gets to rest. It’s not everyday that I actually get to observe and appreciate my surroundings. And of course, having the elevator to myself and being free to do whatever.
