On Slowness

Yesterday, I was restless. I stared reading Slowness by Milan Kundera and the following paragraph resonated with my restlessness:

"There is a Czech proverb that describes their easy indolence by a metaphor: 'They are gazing at God's windows.' A person gazing at God's windows is not bored; he is happy. In our world, indolence has turned into having nothing to do, which is a completely different thing: a person with nothing to do is frustrated, bored, is constantly searching for the activity he lacks."
