Finally.

I got a breath away from Boston for a few hours, out to the coast. I felt like I was traveling again, seeing the world, doing those things, those things that I’m supposed to be doing. I was doing them.

I could have been in any city in the world today and it wouldn’t have made a bit of difference. Most cities have public libraries, most public libraries have Internet hook-ups, and most internet hook-ups have the same old selection of content. And I spent most of my day ...
