On the surface my memory was fine, although sometimes I did forget things. To my chagrin, I lost count of how many carbohydrates I had consumed in those deli market delights and that raised my blood sugar, which in turn altered my perception. The pastries were free, but I should not have consumed so many of them. I saw this tulip and I suddenly had a profound understanding that it was not good to get mud in your eye, so you might call this an epiphany of sorts.
