Shifts are neat. A shift is when you suddenly think totally differently about something than just moments ago, and can't believe you haven't seen it in that new way all along. You can't seem to force shifts, they just happen - pop! Et voilà, your outlook has changed.
Eeewww, I thought the other morning when I opened the window and saw a swirl of insect eggs stuck to the window screen. But the swirl was pretty neat in its shape, and I looked closer, wondered, took some pictures - and then my mind went pop. All of a sudden I thought, wait, whatever this is - I get to watch these eggs transform and hatch and do whatever these things do (I think these things are moth eggs). Suddenly eeewww transformed into a gift, a gift from nature. How neat is that!
