Daily Bread

I might try something unconventional today and have dinner at five o'clock. That's when I had dinner almost every night for several decades, but the disruption of my schedule the last few years has led to highly irregular mealtimes. In fact I can't remember the last time I had dinner at five o'clock, though it must have happened at least once or twice in the last couple of years. Today just happened to fall into that lost pattern, and it seems to be appropriate that I should eat at what used to be on time. Now all I need is for no disruptions to take place in the next two hours. Then it will still be daylight when I'm finished! That's going to be very strange.
