Golden Hours before the Aquarium

I can spend hours just watching the aquarium.

My coffee turns cold, the housework is neglected, other planned activities forgotten.

This could be considered  a negative thing, but I prefer to see the brighter side.  It probably contributes to my lower blood pressure, it definitely contributes to my education and entertainment, and is likely far better for me than television.

You must have been warned against letting the golden hours slip by. Yes, but some of them are golden only because we let them slip by. –

James M. Barrie, novelist and playwright (1860-1937)
