Don’t leave home without one

I usually take a book with me when I go out unless I absolutely know I will not get a chance to read or that it will be inconvenient toting it around at the place I am going. You never know when the chance may arise for good read even if short.

Now that I have let my mathematics curiosity get the better of me, I vacillate between taking a novel or a math text with me. I suppose if one desires to delight and sharpen the mind’s eye through reading it does not matter as long as the book requires a slow reading and careful study.

I plan on going out for lunch today one way or the other. I predict I will take a mathematics text with me. My mind’s eye sees me slumped over a math book, puzzling over a proof, then staring vacantly off into to space.

The scene makes me feel like a lump of meaningless flesh. Yet I am to harsh with myself. Simple pleasures should not be ignored.
