Infinite Time

To infinity and beyond!

My dad, who is a mathematician, says that when he sits down to do math – by which he means big MATH as opposed to reviewing a journal submission or someone’s doctoral dissertation – he likes to feel as if he has an infinite amount of time available to him.  I know what he means.  When I sit down to write, I like to know that there is nothing else I really should be doing.  That I have a whole day, or even half a day that I don’t have to fill with anything but writing.  That I don’t even need to the clean the house … Honest, cleaning the house is not a delay tactic …
