This I Believe - Rhode Island: Boredom
By Frederic Reamer
Providence, RI – How often have you stood impatiently in what turned out to be the interminably long line at the supermarket, or felt at a complete loss for what to do in those all-too-rare, often unexpected hiatuses in your overly scheduled life? As Henri Flikier observes, boredom is in the eye of the beholder and, often, is not what it seems.
Flikier is a clinical social worker and psychotherapist practicing in Providence and North Kingstown. He grew up in Paris, France and moved to New York City as a teenager. Flikier resides in East Bay with his wife and two daughters.
