is it possible our best hours now are those in which we are allowed
to wander off

Yes.

Nothing but diversions these days. Reality is hunkered down in some murky complex and looking more gaunt by the day.

Our wandering off from it, as though it were a loyal dog of which we have grown tired, might well make it wonder about all those years it's put into tirelessly obeying our every command, and fulfilling if not our every wish at least a reasonable percentage of same, in as cinematic a fashion as possible, while always including a pay packet, as it's said to have done, though.

Perhaps a bit of counselling and some restorative activities might help, we could simply direct it to the appropriate agencies, I believe they are to be found under that tent right over there, unless the emergency response personnel happens to be busy at the moment, what with the protests and demonstrations scheduled all across the wandering zone.
