Crumbs From the Corner: Adventures in Woolgathering

"I never saw an ugly thing in my life: for let the form of an object be what it may - light, shade, and perspective will always make it beautiful."
-John Constable (English landscape painter 1776-1837)

At 8:30 the other morning Spouse was racing around the place trying to get ready for work. That was rather late by Spouse's standards.
I had, for once, breakfasted before Spouse left and, along with the fact that I had ironed some clothing and cooked some apple sauce, was quite ready to go back to bed for a light morning nap.
"Oh, good," I exclaimed, "it is only 8:30. Doesn't it feel so much later?"
Spouse gave me such a look just then, and advised me to write about the matter so that I would understand the vast difference that perspective can make. So I did, and I surely do now. It might have been the same time by way of the clock but it all depends, really, on whether one will be napping or working.
