This week over at Takimag, we learn about Dr. and Mrs. Dalrymple missing their train from Nimes to Paris and their interesting overnight stay in a typically characterless, modern hotel.
What would we have done with the day we “wasted” by going back and forth to Nîmes? No doubt we should have filled it with the unnecessary clutter of our lives. Thank goodness we missed our train, then! At least I was able to read a book by an author about whom I am soon to give a talk—this year, I think.
