“Waking dreams, lucid dreams and daydreams, as well as being a source of pleasure in themselves, can also be of practical use in helping us create visions of our ideal life. Once the vision is in place, then the life will eventually follow. Be brave, idleheart! The difficulty is that we get ourselves caught in a double bind: we work so hard that we do not allow ourselves time to dream, and therefore we continue to work hard because we’ve not had the time to dream up an alternative. If you are ever sacked or made redundant, then I suggest you thank the good Lord above.” – How to Be Idle by Tom Hodgkinson
