Sometimes I wonder whether it was easier for people in earlier centuries. I'm sure it wasn't, but it's fun to think about. You have your job, you marry whoever comes along (because you absolutely had to get married) and you spend your evenings by the fire with your family. None of this lonely, drunken XML coding on a Saturday night, pausing only to sing along with The Smiths and to do a quick bit of writing.

They might have pitied us, rushing from one distraction to the next, cramming as much as possible into our lives to avoid real introspection.
