How to spend each golden hour? Are you looking to add a little structure to your day? If so, here are some scheduling ideas from a couple of the best novels that I have ever read:
contemplation until lunchtime;
after lunch a nap (one hour),
then coffee, in bed if transportation was available;
flute playing in bed (one hour);
play bagpipes while marching round the room (one hour);
more bagpipes out in the courtyard (half an hour) . . .
from The Tin Drum, 1959
by Nobel prize winner Gunter Grass
. . . or . . .
12.00. Go, weather permitting, to College, there conducting light conversation on diverse topics with friends, or with acquaintances of a casual character.
2.00 p.m. Go home for lunch.
3.00. Return to bedroom. Engage in spare - time literary activity, or read.
from At Swim Two Birds, 1939
by Irish novelist Flann O'Brien
