Here is a recent photograph. Would you believe it took 365 hours waiting to get a cloud in perfect parallel alignment with the building? Just like waiting for eclipse of the sun.
No….how about 24 hours……….12 hours…………6 hours……….1 hour……….5 minutes?????
Alright, I turned around and it was there.
However the little Sugar Bowl Cloud Watchers loved it and did believe me when I said it took 365 hours to take it. So please don’t spoil their pleasure by telling them anything different…….or do you think we should always tell our little Sugar Bowls the absolute truth regardless?

Parallel realities – who cares how long you waited. Be truthful to your sugar bowls – they are The Watchers and know when you veer away from what is true…
John ….agree truth is absolute. How did you handle Santa or similar with your kids when they were young?
Ah – touche – well we never actually told them that Santa was a real person and when they grew to the time of endless questions it all became a playful word dance like a magician’s sleight of hand. As long as he remained in the world of imagination Santa was just another fictional character like in the books they read – but then there’s the mysterious physical side to the old fella – the delivery of gifts etc. not so easy to explain except to suggest that there was magic in the world and it was like a wonderful game. Eventually I believe they learned the truth from peers but, kudos to them, they continued to play the game and still do – in their twenties now.
A wonderful outcome and you remained true to your own values.
