'Elton worked hard and worried hard, and he was often in need of rest. But he had a restless mind, which meant that he could not rest on his own place in the presence of his own work. If he rested there, first he would begin to think about what he had to do, and then he would begin to do it.
To rest, he needed to be in somebody else's place.'
Wendell Berry, 'Are You All Right?' in That Distant Land, p.367.
