What is required for successful leisure is the accumulation of supplies the leisurist feels comfortable working.
At least that is my working assumption. I think this is why, when we all got trapped at home, we started baking. Who doesn’t feel somewhat comfortable with food? I think it’s why bicycle repairers invented the airplane. And I suspect the lack of accumulation of supplies we feel comfortable working with is why it’s easier for us to turn to Facebook and Netflix to pass our nights. Learning a new skill is hard. Buying supplies required to learn a new skill often feels like a waste. Why don’t we watch Hamilton on Disney+ again?
Anyway, if someone out there has a good book or podcast on the Wright brothers please send it my way. I’m contemplating having my leisure be reading about them. From my high school level knowledge, it seems crazy they were the ones who invented the airplane. I’d like to know more. That said, I’m not sure I’m ready to start reading history books. I definitely haven’t accumulated a bunch of history books supplies…
Anyway, the search goes on.
