After my last post I went to my igoogle page (I would marry Google if Google were a person) to check my G-Reader and lo and behold the literary quote of the day had been updated.

There is nothing like being left alone again, to walk peacefully with oneself in the woods. To boil one’s coffee and fill one’s pipe, and to think idly and slowly as one does it. – Knut Hamsun

Granted there are no woods here and I’m not boiling my own coffee or filling any pipes but the sentiment is the same.
