On time and perspective

There’s a photo on the wall in our hall, showing Mrs Snags and me on our honeymoon.

Every time I see it, a couple of things come to mind. Well, actually, many things, but two that are relevant to this particular post.

The first is the memory of thinking back then “OK, I’m a bit porky these days; could do with losing a few pounds.”

The second is the much more current thought “Just a few more stone to go, and I’ll be back down to what I weighed when we got married. Excellent!”.

I’m just hoping that it’s not only the perspective caused by looking into the distance that makes that younger me looks acceptably thin, because there’s no way I’ll be getting below that target …
