b. 1981, Austin Texas
“A naturalist of very fixed habits followed the sun around his house. Soon after dawn he sat at breakfast with his family on the porch that faced east. At eleven o’clock he joined his family for a cup of coffee on the veranda that faced the sun towards the southeast. At lunchtime he ate on the terrace with his family overlooking the garden that lay due south. At about seven o’clock the naturalist dined with his family in the conservatory that faced the sunset, and as soon as it was dark the naturalist went to bed.
When the world began to spin anti-clockwise, the naturalist couldn’t change his habits and he spent the day alone living in the shadow of his house, and never sat or ate with his family again.”
