Doing Philosophy

I am sitting here at work with really nothing much to do (and getting paid for it), and I'm thinking... what does it mean for me to think? It's interesting how I can think and "do" philosophy in a sense, without needing any "tools" as such. Let me say here, just for the fun of saying it: I do not need tools qua tools to think. And this is an interesting position philosophers find themselves in: they can do their work anywhere and anytime - at least on principle. The only "tools" thinkers really need are the ones they already have: existence and consciousness. It is so simple, and so overwhelmingly profound -- to think; and think of thinking.
