Alan Carpenter looks like losing government in WA. NASA, because of the stupidity of American politics, looks like losing access to the International Space Station. It’s all about losing control over something. Sometimes material, sometimes ethereal. Almost always involving a lack of attention to the detail of that control.
That’s why, occasionally and far too rarely these days, I like to get away and let things happen around me. I haven’t been to the seaside for many, many years and while four days seems such a scant period in which to unwind, relax and let the world drift past, I think I managed it rather nicely. I recommend regular R&R to everyone.
