I’ve been warned that this is a dangerous fantasy. Recall the Twilight Zone episode wherein loner, Burgess Meridith, wishes only to be left alone so that he can indulge his passion for reading. When he is left the sole survivor of a nuclear holocaust, he is delighted to discover that the local library has remained unscathed. As he reaches for his first book he inadvertently steps on his glasses, crushing them into miniscule pieces. Consequently, he is unable to read a thing.
Moral of the story? Diversify one’s passions.
