As I write this, I am exhausted in every dimension in which exhaustion is possible. Physical, spiritual, emotional and mental. And I am off on holiday for a few days. I have to admit that one part of me still thinks that holidays are for wimps. And one part of me is secretly thinking that a holiday is the just the time I need to get some work done. PhD Comics sums it up perfectly.
But in truth I know that I desperately need a break. I have actually been getting more and more run down in recent weeks, and consequently less and less able to blog. And so the list of topics about which I am bursting to blog has got longer and longer. When I get back I hope to have time to comment on
- The completion of the Boltzmann project – the most accurate temperature measurement in the world. Ever!
- The ‘Slow Science’ movement
