The Voice of Experience
Ricehusk Jailbird took apart broken clocks. When she reassembled them they kept perfect time. Ricehusk tried to explain her method. When I look at a busted clock, she said, I see two colored shapes in my head. Then the shapes sort of swallow each other up and make one shape. I look at the new shape and I know exactly how to fix the clock. Ricehusk had a large collection of clock gears that the clocks she repaired did not need anymore. I’ve noticed one thing, said Ricehusk. Clock makers use a lot more gears then they really need to.
