the desired state of humanity [is] otium (not so much ‘leisure’, as it is usually translated, but the state of being in control of one’s own time)

Mary Beard, SPQR

Ironically, after starting this blog, I’ve been spending more time in front of a screen, in order to help me in my quest to spend less time in front of a screen. But, I think it’s worthwhile to gather and write out my thoughts and hone them further, as I explore pursuing otium in real life. I don’t know what will ultimately come out of this effort, but I think it will be fun and illuminating for me, and hopefully useful and interesting for others.

I used to work at a large law firm (aka Biglaw) and now I’m an in-house attorney at a company. More information about me here.
