The Point of View

A recent experience of mine, though perhaps insignificant, has been of great help to me, and it may help others.

A friend in pointing out the comet, spoke of its being above the lower left star of the dipper. In vain I searched and wondered why I could not see what was so apparent to others. Upon further discussion I learned that I had always viewed the dipper differently from my friend, and from the majority of those present. They saw it with the handle on the left, and I with the handle on the right. Not only was the comet immediately found after this, but the experience taught me a helpful lesson.
