orchid - or, a four-minute prompt

Alice and I have a new regime this semester, borrowed wholesale from Dr Phil's column in O magazine (a confession of spare-time reading habits, that one ...) - which is to only say upbeat, cheerful things during the first four minutes that we see each other when we get back in the evening.  Admittedly, this makes for some very bland conversation on days like today - "what a great evening" - "ooooh, look, one can see the far mountains today" - "there's a blue jay" - and so on.  But it's a good grounding device.  And having prompts around, like a speckled orchid (admittedly, this is in breakfast-time light) is a considerable help, too.
