Choosing the Moment.

Try watching this at 7 o’clock in the morning when you’re still coming to terms with the cold light of day. It won’t mean anything. Try it at 11am when you’re having a coffee break as a reward for vacuuming all those nasty places behind the furniture that only get dealt with once a year. You’ll probably last thirty seconds. Give it another go at 1pm when you’ve stopped for lunch and can’t decide whether to have scrambled eggs on toast or a cheese sandwich. It won’t reconcile with the mindset.

But watch it at 3am while the wind moans gently beyond the dark window and the third scotch is slipping down nicely, and it’s as close to magic as you’re likely to find in this poor excuse for reality. It’s all in the timing.
