In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “A Moment in Time.”
This “story” is a reflection on the experience itself.
Here we are then testing the scale to be used to weigh the threads entered in the International Longest (hand spun) Thread Competition (I’m the current coordinator).
As I stood there watching Ron do the testing of the scale – calibrating it is just the beginning apparently – I learned so much. The process took around two hours (but that includes me asking questions). It could have been boring, but I was delighted he was prepared to explain to me what was going on. Janie from No Plain Janie alludes to this in her post about time and making the most of it, and I guess her post influenced my interpretation of the prompt.
It really was a morning well spent.
