Book Of A Lifetime: Under Milk Wood, By Dylan Thomas

In Nicholson Baker's book 'The Mezzanine', he discusses the periodicity of recurring thoughts, wondering about those thoughts which travel on a loop, each taking intervals of weeks or months to complete their orbit and resurface again. I first read 'Under Milk Wood' by Dylan Thomas on a coach in Australia when I was 24, and I'd guess I've thought about it every two to three weeks since then. It joins a jumble of other regular visitors, including: diminishing fish stocks, guilt-induced but wildly unfeasible resolutions for being better at staying in touch with friends, Helen Keller, the phrase "you pays your money and you takes your choice", and scientific footage of a white rat with spinal injuries swimming in a tank.

Putting milk in first, second or not at all has been as important in these circles as what you eat with it and when.
