This morning as Kathy and I were walking up South Temple (in the dark), we passed our friend Dave walking his dog Molly. Dave pointed at the sky and said, "Look! It's Jupiter!" And there it was--hanging like a fat star on the inky horizon. So the three of us (and also Molly) stood and marveled for a moment in silence.
I don't know why things like this touch me so, but they do--to think you can stand on a city sidewalk and see another planet shining! It makes you feel like a part of something bigger.
