Subject: Meteors and me
I couldn't sleep that night [of the meteor shower]: I am on some new antibiotic
that makes me a bit hyper. So at one, one thirty, then two, I went out
to look up at the sky, and there they were, the Leonids. What amazed me
were the long tails some of them had. The meteors are apparently rather
small in themselves; it's their speed that makes them so visible. (I guess
the message is to slow down unless you want to be noticed.) Savya came
out too and actually stayed out after me for a bit. We slept in the next
morning. But we have seen many celestial sights up here: The Hales Comet,
the Hale Bopp comet, and others I forget. We even thought of buying a
telescope, but the field of vision is much too narrow for us. We want
the entire sky to float around in. Anyway, thanks. Happy Thanks Giving.
Glad you could hear the [e-mail greeting] card
