For if that which was done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious.

They Have Become Utterly Boring To Me

1) Articles about church politics and the Bishop of Rome, and liturgical polemic in all its forms

2) All news as reported by the media

3) The advance of equality - any kind of equality

4) Improving performance and "service" in my hospital workplace

5) Conversations about eating out, moving house, schools, weekends, holidays etc.

6) Diets - vegan, gluten-free, yeast-free, lactose-free - all diets whatsoever they be

7) The gymnasium, and exercise programs, as a way to get fit, get a certain body shape etc.

8) Professional sport, above all interviews with sportsmen

9) Trying to gain psychological insight into oneself

10) Trying not to look and sound utterly bored by all of the above

No. 10 means that most of my daily conversations have become very brief, thank heaven.

  1. I do relate and sympathise. A few friends and I - we are all near neighbours - have those impromptu meetings where we drink tea and talk of Confucian classics, and mostly remain silent together while looking at the sea.
