I just went out to get some straws. I got the last one.
The last straw thing is just a pun. I get niggled by not being able to resolve things - all sorts of things. I thought I had completed a work a few weeks ago, but, on considering the 'finished' article, became acutely aware that I had fallen short. It has been bugging me ever since - in fact it has been such a distraction it has made it difficult for me to concentrate on other things. A couple of days ago I struck upon the solution, reflected on it to be sure, and decided to try it out today. This is where the straws came in, it was worth taking the time out to do, and I'm happy.
Hours of thinking, a moment to execute.
It could be tricky to photograph, but I will post something soon.
