Background

A description of the experience

Boethius – The Consolation of Philosophy

The careful man will wish
To build a lasting home
Unshakeable by winds
That thunder from the East.
He'll shun the open sea
That threatens with its waves
And choose no mountain peaks
Which all the strength of winds
Buffet and beat from the south
He'll choose no thirsty sands
That sink and melt away
Beneath the building's weight
He'll flee the dangerous lot
Of sites that please the  eye
Secure on lowly rock
Though thunderous winds resound
And churn the seething sea
Hidden away in peace
And sure of your strong built walls
You will lead a life serene
And smile at the raging storm
