Ladies and gents: a metaphor.
The sunrise was beautiful this morning. I looked straight ahead, to the usual place (you know, east) and zoomed in.
Luckily, I also happened to catch the rest of the sunrise out of the corner of my eye. It was so much more beautiful than I'd originally thought.
The lesson for the day: take a step back and view the big picture now and then, rather than focusing on the little stuff. The big picture may not be as horrifying as you thought.
This lesson brought to you by the sun and Ms. Bitters, one of whom is a better teacher than the other.
