|My intent was neither scoffing nor deriding. Like, I suspect, many, I wish I knew where and when so I can do it. It looked about as close to perfection as one can get.|
I was hoping just to point out, as did the author of the classic short story, the irony that, for many if not most of us, the closer to predictable perfection it gets....it then begins to lose those crucial but sometimes unappreciated elements of challenge, variety, and unpredictability.
It is one of those "be careful what you wish for" things. I once had unlimited access to free (Atlantic) lobster....all I could eat....anytime....free. And I LOVED lobster. Past tense. I have gorged and sated and then suffered from redside poisoning and several others....even steelhead poisoning. Near to that now. Ho hum....another 10 pound steelhead jumping all over the place. Irony....just noting to myself and anyone else who might feel similarly..the irony.
